Car Bomb Injures 11 in Front of Church

[326] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Christians in Syria.

A car bomb injured 11 people during a prayer meeting in front of a Syrian Orthodox church in northern Syria. Locals in the city of Qamishli said that if the attack had happened just minutes later, people would have been emerging from the service and the number of casualties would have been much higher. The self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) claimed responsibility and Christians fear they will continue to be targets despite the declared victory over ISIS. Pray that God will rebuild His church in Syria, adding to those who have chosen to stay despite the atrocities of recent years and renewing in them a steadfast spirit.
