CWN Editor's Note: Mor Yuhanon Church in Mardin “contains the tombs of two Syrian Orthodox patriarchs,” according to the report. “The owners, who have used the spaces of the church as a warehouse in the last two years, were therefore not allowed to make any architectural changes to the structure, but have the right to sell.”
