Islamic State militants have reportedly executed 15 Christians who have been captured in villages in northeastern Syria since Monday.

A priest who has been feeding reports to Christian aid agencies around the world, including Aleteia partner Aid to the Church in Need, said today that a Christian Assyrian lawyer in the city of Hassakah told him that about 15 young Assyrians “are martyred. Many of them were fighting to defend and protect the villages and families.”

Archimandrite Emanuel Youkhana of CAPNI, the Christian Aid Program in Iraq, said that in the Christian village of Tel Hormizd: 14 fighters, two of whom were women, were killed. One of the women may have been beheaded, he said. Another 13 fighters from different villages were captured.

Altogether, including civilians, as many as 350 Christians from the area have been captured, he reported—many more than the 70 originally reported. Their fate is unknown, and there is much speculation. He said that an unconfirmed report said that a mosque in the Arab Sunni village of Bab Alfaraj was calling people to attend a “mass killing of infidels in the mountain of Abdul Aziz on Friday.” READ MORE via Aid to the Church in Need

Though we have been unable to verify this report, we are asking for urgent prayers for those abducted and being persecuted in Syria. May God be with them in this horrific storm.

    May God’s radiant light be as bright as the sun…surrounding these that we love and hold close and dear.
    May that light also blind and convict and eviscerate the powers and principalities of this darkness.
    IN JESUS NAME
