Syria rebels hit Christian school with missiles, students safe

Voice of the Martyrs USA works closely with a Syrian Christian school and posted on their Facebook page that rebel forces fired missiles at one of the school’s classrooms.

The report has been confirmed by MNN who confirmed that the children were outside and none were injured.

Both reports detail how over 100,000 people have been killed since 2011 in the violent civil war. Christians have been targeted by Islamist rebels, even executing them on crosses.

The Open Doors 2014 World Watch List now has Syria ranked 3, moved up from the number 11 slot in 2013, as thousands of Christian believers are fleeing their homes, migrating to nearby countries seeking refuge.

World Watch List notes “As the civil conflict inside Syria becomes more and more severe, targeted violence against Christians has escalated. The Syrian opposition is increasingly ‘Islamizing’, and Christians are becoming more vulnerable in all spheres of life. Many Christians were reported to have been abducted, physically harmed or killed, and many churches damaged or destroyed. On October 21st, Islamist militias invaded the ancient Christian settlement of Sadad, killing at least 45 people, and injuring many more.”

North Korea and Somalia top the list.
