Rebels Take Syrian Nuns

My story, Rebel group demands trade for Syrian nuns, was published back on Dec. 12, but I haven’t had time to post until now.

Syrian rebel group Ahrar Al-Qalamoun Brigade took responsibility for the recent abduction of 12 nuns and three civilians from the ancient Christian village of Maaloula, while conflicting reports cast uncertainty over whether the nuns were abducted or evacuated.

The group, which has close ties to Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Nusra Front, demanded the release of 1,000 female detainees in exchange for the nuns’ release, according to Asharq Al-Awsat. It also demanded the government end its siege on certain areas of Syria, including the Ghouta district of Damascus.

About Julia

Here's what you might like to know about me. My name is Julia and I'm a Christian. I love the Bible and, much less importantly, a good steak. My goal with this site is to share the truth of scripture with believer and non-believer alike, and to specifically encourage believers to study and know the Bible, and warn them of false teachings in and around the church. Romans 1:16-17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, the just shall live by faith."
