Catholics, Orthodox Christians face threat of ethnic cleansing in northern Syria
November 05, 2019
CWN Editor's Note: “The sudden withdrawal of American troops left not just the Kurds but also Syriac Orthodox and Syriac Catholic communities exposed,” according to the report. “Turkey intends to ethnically cleanse a 30-kilometer strip along Syria’s northern border and populate it with two million Syrian Muslim refugees who have poured into Turkey since 2014. [Chaldean Catholic Bishop Bawai] Soro believes Turkish aggression is about more than refugee resettlement.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
