Drone footage focuses on the Saint Elias Cathedral in the Al-Jadideh quarter of Aleppo. The church will hold its first Christmas ceremony in four years this coming Sunday.
The church is considered to be one of the oldest in the Middle East. It was built in 1873. Throughout the Syrian crisis, the church has been the target of three missile attacks by militants.

There are Christian churches in the 1.3 million city of Mosul. What are we doing there?
We must bunker bomb the 40 miles of tunnels in Mosul. This will kill many thousands but not as much as the Tokyo napalm bombing and the Dresden napalm bombing that we did. So I say GET IT ON!! If you live in Mosul EVACUATE OR DIE!!! We are coming to kill the godless Isis bastards to the last MF. But who cares about Syria taking their city back from TERRORISTS? Suck it up buttercup!!Go ASSAD!!
I hope Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton are proud what they have done
Wendle, dude. You gotta calm down.
“We’re” there because that is exactly where we need to be.
Since it was a Russian drone, digits and publication, how can it be anything but propaganda in furtherance of reestablishing the soviet state?/s
Where? Syria. We have already been to Mosul and conquered the SOBs once!! I agree we need to go back and take the OIL and kill all those godless isis, but it will be far greater collateral killing than Aleppo and I suggest we suck it up and quit this maudlin crap! Isis hides behind women. kILL isis AT ALL COST!!
We just elected the next leader of the new crusades. Time to set the world straight.
I noticed the crosses atop the buildings.
Assad has always protected Christians in Syria. That’s far more than could be said for a lot of middle eastern nations.
Honestly, I trust Assad and Putin more than I do obama. Assad never allowed genocide of Christians. Obama did.
These are not our parents Russians.
Hillary makes me more nervous than Vlad...
At least he has the best interest of Russia at heart, as opposed to Berry.
We must not do anything but get our troops asses out of the middle east. There is no declaration of war and Obama has turned this into the biggest clusterfluck in history. Bring them home and re evaluate. Other than that I’m with you. If we are going to fight a war it needs to be all out punishment where those on the other side feel the kind of pain that make them think twice about what they do. Kill people and break sh!t.
Aleppo looks too densely populated for me and pretty bleak aesthetically.
Well, You are right!! just get the hell out! Close our borders and get these wahhabi sunnis out of our country. The NUKE THE HELL UP!!!
We shall rebuild their refineries, pipelines and loading facilities on the Persian Gulf and IRaq will pay for it. It will provide years of work for US E&C companies.
That’s a lot of repair. Little by little it will be rebuilt.
The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankinds judge on the last day.
I think the article is about a church in Aleppo, Syria, not Mosul, Iraq.
Obama has turned this into the biggest clusterfluck in history.
With the full support of the Republican Congress. They just authorized sending shoulder-fired missiles to the Syrian rebels.
Trump and Putin should organize a fund to garner money to Rebuild the church-—bigger, brighter, more magnificent than before—a beacon of faith and hope. I believe Americans would give their nickles and dimes to shove it in the face of Islamic Fanatics. I would.
