Residents of a Christian village in western Syria have taken shelter in a convent as it was bombarded by al Qaeda-linked rebels.
The rebel fighters stormed a hotel atop a mountain overlooking Maaloula to carry out the attack, said a nun, speaking on condition of anonymity from a convent in the village.
"It's a war. It has been going from 6am in the morning," she said.
Some 80 people took refuge in the convent, which houses 13 nuns and 27 orphans.
The dawn assault was carried out by rebels from the al Qaeda-linked Jabhat al Nusra group, according to a government official and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based opposition monitoring group.

In a country where prior to the invasion by the Al-CIAeda rebels, all religious groups lived in peace. But wait, I thought Syria under Assad was evil?
The false flag chemical attack wasnt enough to get people outraged, so they've moved onto plan B: trying killing some Christians.

And just think of all the good Christians in our government that wants to help Al Qaeda kill other Christians. Maybe it's time to get these people a bible.
