St. Mary’s Syrian Orthodox Church in Dair Al-Zor Destroyed
Damascus, November 5, 2012
Archbishop was reported that there was an explosion near the church, but never had an idea how much damage was done to it. Later a picture was published in Facebook.
The Archbishop said that it was early this summer that many Christian community]ies left Dair Al-Zor, because of the heavy fighting in the town. Many of them were displaced in Hassake, where the Archdiocesan headquarters is located. The community in Dair Al-Zor worked hard for ten years (1994-2004) to build this church as well as the Al-wahda Private School. The criminals destroyed all these wonderful works in less than one minute.
Archbishop Eustathius Matta Roham request prayers, good will and action to bring an end to destruction of God’s sanctuaries.
