(Worthy News) - Since the defeat of ISIS, some Christian families are beginning to move back to their communities in Iraq, however, they are now facing new threats from Iranian-back militia groups, according to a report by CBN News.

But Carl Anderson, CEO of the Knights of Columbus, tells CBN News that with the fall of ISIS, a different menace is now taking its place in Iraq's Christian towns.

"Iranian-backed militias are occupying many of the formerly Christian towns and making it virtually impossible for Christians to come back in," Anderson, who just returned from northern Iraq, told CBN News. "What ISIS failed to accomplish, that is to have a religious cleansing of Christians in the area, Iran, through their surrogates, may accomplish still." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
