Maaloula: The battle for Syria’s ancient Christian Village continues (Video)

In this RT broadcast, it is reported that government forces have succeeded in ridding most of the town of the rebel Jihadist fighters, but snipers remain at hotel that stands on a cliff  that overlooks the village. As the news team tried to exit the town, their vehicle was fired upon, and they had to take cover in an ally where dozens of Syrian soldiers have also taken cover. One of the soldiers gets hit in the head with shrapnel.

Note that one of Obama’s  partners in the fight to oust Assad has planted the black al qaeda flag on one of the buildings.

UPDATE:

Another report from today in Syria:

Who to root for when both sides are bad?

 UPDATE:

Residents Of Christian Village Besieged By Al Nusra Front Send Letter To Congress Urging Them Not To Allow Obama To Bomb Syria…

On September 6, the residents of Ma’loula sent a letter to the Congress of the USA, in which they tell what happened as a result of criminal acts in one of the oldest towns of the Christian world, reports Linga.

“First, let us tell you what has happened today in Ma’loula and then explain what Ma’loula is like,” the letter said. “At 4.00 AM (Damascus time), gangs of the ‘Free Syrian army’, terrorists and killers… attacked the town, violating the security of houses, monasteries and churches, desecrating icons, and demanding that people renounce their faith and accept Islam.

“Yes, that is what has happened today at dawn in Ma’loula, when the armed gangs burst into the town, shot in the square, desecrated the icons, and closed the gates.

“These are the crimes aimed at Christian towns, and the terrorism directed against Christians; and this is only a part of the larger plan of wiping out Christians from our native homes.

This is happening now, when our state is still strong. But what will happen when it weakens, when the air force of the USA is bombing Syria?

“What awaits Christians in the towns and villages? It is terrible and it is scaring us. What happened in Ghassaniyeh (A Catholic priest-monk, Fr. Francois Mourad, was brutally killed there), in the Monastery of St. Simeon the Stylite, and in Holms, where terrible attacks on churches and monasteries took place. What has happened in all these places, arouses one’s conscience, makes one suffer. What have I done to stop terrorism in Syria? I am not even speaking about the massacres that have happened in all towns to the Christian minority.”
