Video: Assyrian Christians fight to defend their communities in Syria

SHARE

The Syriac Military Council (MFS) was established in January 2013 to protect the marginalised Assyrian Christian communities in Syria.

They have fought to defend themselves from the Islamic State, Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham and frequently work in tandem with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).

As sectarian violence swamps Syria, MFS aim to defend their land, religion and identity in a region where Christians are increasingly finding themselves unwelcome.
