DAMASCUS, (Worthy News)– Christians in Syria need during that country’s current civil turmoil; at least 2,700 people have been killed and thousands more arrested in an effort to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Syria’s general population has already suffered job losses with increased food prices; now Jerry Dykstra of Open Doors USA tells OneNewsNow how Christians are also suffering.

“More so perhaps than the regular population,” he said, “so there’s a great need for goods (and) for food … we need to uplift the community there, which numbers about ten percent of the country, which is a significant amount: 1.9 million people.”

According to Dykstra, if al-Assad is overthrown, shar’ia law may be implemented, which will further threaten Syrian Christians.

“Many Iraqi Christians have fled into Syria — maybe 100,000 Christians there in the last few months,” said Dykstra, “and they’re fearful what happened in will also happen in Syria.”

After Iraqi President was removed from office, imprisoned, convicted and executed, Iraqi Christians were persecuted and many had to flee for their lives into Syria.
