Syria: Christians flee al-Qusayr

April 03, 2012

Amid attacks by Islamist rebel factions, Christians have fled al-Qusayr (Kusayr), a city of 30,000 in west-central Syria.

“The Christian family Kasouha lost many of its members, killed cold bloodedly,” the Fides new agency reports. “Christian buildings were destroyed or burned after being looted. The house of the local parish priest, Father George Louis, was hit by four mortar rounds [and] completely destroyed … Christians’ movable and immovable property [has] already been redistributed to Sunni Muslim families.”
