Two Christian men, Firas Nader, 29, and Fadi Matanius Mattah, 34, were driving one day in Syria, from Homs to the Christian village of Marmarita, when five armed Muslims intercepted their vehicle and opened fire, severely injuring Firas. When the gunmen approached the car, they saw that Fadi was wearing a cross and so, in their hatred for Christ, decided to take him out, and behead him. After they were done, they assumed that the other Christian, Firas, was dead, and left him.
Firas, with whatever life remained within him, managed to escape on foot to the town of Almshtaeih, and then from there, was transferred to the hospital in Tartou.
This is just one example of the travails of the Christians in Syria. PLEASE DONATE AND SAVE CHRISTIANS IN SYRIA AND IRAQ.
