Here you see the victory shouts of the Syrian government forces. They have regained control of the Lepo city and say they will commit their lives, their blood for the freedom of Syria. Lepo is Syria’s second largest city. Until recently a part of the city was under the control of Syrian forces and the other part was controlled by ISIS terrorists. Here in the presence of the media we can see how Jihad and ISIS terrorists have left their weapons and fled. To the West of the city large numbers of residents have been injured and stranded among the buildings that have collapsed. With the success of the forces the government has announced that the roads have been opened for organizations that are willing to help them to come in. The displaced people are now being supplied with water and essential foods and the people can leave the area if they wish to do so.
Archbishop Mario speaking to the media said that no matter what obstacles come their way the humanitarian aid will not stop. Even with the ceasefire in operation the provision of assistance will continue in an organized manner. The Archbishop went on to say that the Christians living here are facing very severe conditions but there are living by faith. He said that everyone’s hope is that the war situation will come to an end soon.
The only reason for living conditions to decline here is the occasional bomb attacks. Here you see the scene of devastation in a village near the Syrian border soon after a bomb attack. The ISIS terrorists have claimed responsibility and the Syrian forces have launched heavy attacks against them. However a side effect of this situation is that in the face of these attacks from the government forces the terrorists are fleeing to countries in the West and attacking people there.
