Iraqi Christian HRC
Reports of a possible chlorine chemical attack against civilians in #Aleppo, #Syria, by extremists in nearby area. At least 30 civilians are injured. Extremists in nearby areas are terrorizing citizens of Aleppo, a city with a large Christian population.
I’ve had some interaction with that Twitter account. They are in Iraq (and in the US). Aleppo is in Syria. They say they represent all Christians in Iraq, but reality is otherwise.
I won’t go into the details on that. It is not constructive. They are right about the damage. And I expect the “extremists” they mention are Nusra or al Sham. Islamist Terrorists.
Christians have forever been in Iraq (Ninevah) and in Syria. ISIS forced most of the Iraq Christians into exile. There were some in Syria that escaped ISIS by leaving, but many were saved by YPG. A lot of them joined YPG and later had their own elements within the SDF.
