By AINA —
Four Assyrian children and one Assyrian woman were killed in a terrorist attack on the government controlled town of Suqaylabiyah, in the Hama province of Syria. The funeral service was held at the Syriac Orthodox Church.
The names of the victims were Bashar, Angie, Suhel, Jessica and Hala.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack on the Assyrian town.
Syria’s Christian population, particularly the Assyrians, have been the target of attacks by Muslim groups since the beginning of the war on Syria.
In 2015 ISIS attacked the 35 Assyrian villages on the Khabour river in the Hasakah province and kidnapped 274 Assyrians. 21 were released within one week, three were executed (AINA 2015-10-08) and the remaining were ransomed.
