  • SYRIA - Eastern Ghouta: What is happening and why

    More than 500 people, mostly civilians, have been killed in a week of bombardments on the rebel-held enclave of Eastern Ghouta, 1.5 kilometres from Anglican Aid's partner in Damascus.

    Pastor Samir Yacco extended his church in recent years during the conflict as refugees sought sanctuary in the relatively stable capital. Now however he reports the bombs are falling less than two kilometres away. 

    Pastor Samir reports that church services were cancelled at many churches in Damascus on 25 February due to the risks of people being out on the street.
