by Moody Adams “An exodus of Christians is taking place in Western Syria.” Dutch journalist and human rights analyst Martin Janssen said. “The Christian population has fled the city of Qusayr, near Homs, following an ultimatum issued by the military chief of the armed opposition, Abdel Salam Harba.
“This is what local sources told Vatican news agency Fides, pointing out that since the conflict broke out, only 1,000 of the city’s 10,000 faithful, were left, and they are now being forced to flee immediately."
Janssen says the city’s mosques have reissued the ultimatum for the Christians to leave.
“Some of the city’s mosques have issued the message again, announcing from the minarets: ‘Christians must leave Qusayr within six days,” Janssen said.
There are not many places that will allow the Christian refugees to come in.
Hanging over them is the shadow of the Christians that were forced to flee Iraq.
