Iraqi Christians on the Run - Again


ERBIL, Iraq --  Christians who sought refuge in the northern Iraqi city of Qaraqosh because of fighting in Mosul are on the run once again.

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) forces attempted to seize Qaraqosh Wednesday, but were turned back by Kurdish Peshmerga troops. The city is located southeast of Mosul.

I've learned that most of the fleeing Christians are destined for Erbil, the capital city of Kurdistan.

It isn't known at this time how many have fled Qaraqosh, but it is now clear, as ISIS advances and aligns itself with the al Nusra terrorists of Syria, Iraqi Christians will soon run out of safe havens. They urgently need our prayers!
