What you see is a present day scene from the city of Malala in Syria. This is a city that is popular as an ancient Christian city. Malala is situated about 35 miles North of Syria’s capital Damascus. In 2013 the terrorists took complete control of this city. After about 8 months and having faced a heavy battle with the terrorists the Syrian forces have succeeded in regaining complete control of the city. The terrorists have succeeded in causing considerable damage to the city. The most tragic situation is the damaged caused to drawings in the Churches in an effort to destroying the Christian heritage of the city. They have also destroyed a large statue of Jesus Christ. All over the city they have caused a great deal of damaged to human life and property.
This lady says that because Malala is a Christian city many terrorists have tried to destroy it. The ISIS terrorists have spread their power all over the Middle East and are destroying Christian lives. She says that the ISIS terrorists came to her house and started shooting saying that they will destroy all Christians. She said that they pleaded to God to protect them and thereby saved their lives. Yet with the intervention of the Syrian government forces this situation is now under control. This Pastor says that this is the symbol of the Christian heritage and therefore the government has taken special action to restore the Christian heritage of this city.
