09/03/2015 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – International Christian Concern has learned that ISIS militants have issued a contract between them and the Christians of the city of al-Quaryatayn in central Syria that grants them protection of their lives in exchange for a tax and agreement to follow a set of strict guidelines. More than 200 others, including at least one priest, were held as hostages according to the Syriac Bishop of Homs after Islamic jihadists took the city of al-Quaryatayn in early August.
ISIS (also known as the so-called Islamic State) on Thursday, September 3, published a photo report “The establishment of the rule of God on the Christians of the city of Quaryatayn,” Jamil Diarbakerli, Director of the Assyrian Monitor for Human Rights told ICC. “The meeting showed images of a lot of Christians abducted from the city of al-Quaryatayn, in what is believed to be a cultural center. It also stipulated 13 items to give security to the Christians in the city,” Diarbakerli said.
