Christians raped by Syrian Jihadists....

The following is an excerpt from a heartbreaking report on the persecution of Christians in Syria. Full details may be read at Vox Cantoris. Please pray for our forgotten Christian brothers and sisters - viciously brutalized. 


Mariam was a 15-year-old Christian from Qusair, a city of the governorate in Homs, 35 km south of the capital. The city, which had become a stronghold of the Syrian rebels, was reconquered by the troops of the regular army at the beginning of June. Mariam’s story - sent to Fides thanks to the report of two Catholic priests - is a sign of the brutality of the conflict and the extreme vulnerability of religious minorities. Mariam's family was in town when militants linked to the jihadist group "Jabhat al-Nusra" conquered and occupied it.

While her family was able to escape, Mariam was taken and forced into an Islamic marriage...
