KHARTOUM (Worthy News)-- The Sudanese Air Force dropped four bombs on a church in the Nuba Mountains Friday.

The Rev. Youhana Yaqoub of the Episcopal Church of Sudan in Al Atmor, South Kordofan state, told Morning Star News that the aerial bombs completely destroyed the church compound in Tabolo.

"A family living at the church compound miraculously escaped the attack, although their whole house and property were destroyed."

Yaqoub said the family thanked God for their safety as they watched their house burn from the bombs.

Sudanese armed forces had previously destroyed the ECS church building in Al Atmor in July.

Since the beginning of September, Sudan has dropped 19 bombs on South Kordofan villages.
