(Worthy News) - Turkey's incursions into northern Syria are threatening a "new exodus of Christians", Aid to the Church in Need has warned.
Archbishop Jacques Behnan Hindo told the charity that two Christians were killed on Thursday during attacks in Qamishli, in the north-east of the country.
He said that around half of the Catholics and Orthodox Christians in Qamishli have already fled since 2010, with a similar proportion having left nearby Hassaké. [ Source: Christian Today (Read More...) ]
