Ma'loula, September 10, 2013
"Where is President Obama to see what is happening to us?" the agency's spokesman says.
One of the residents has reported that a great number of bearded militants entered the town, shouting "Allahu Akbar", and attacked the Christian houses and churches. They killed several people soon after Ma'loula had been seized. "We heard shooting and I saw corpses in the middle of Balharh street," he said. "Where is Obama to see what is happening to us?!"
Another resident has related: "I saw five bearded people who were threatening Christians and saying that they must accept Islam or they would be beheaded". Another citizen has reported that he saw one church burning, and how a militant entered another Church and stole something from it.
The residents of Ma'loula are asking for prayers.
