Iraqi Christians flee village after violence


The town was only liberated from IS last year, with many only having returned recently to rebuild their homes.

However, violence broke out again last week, meaning many Christians in the town have been displaced to nearby Alqosh and surrounding areas. 

The conflict is between Peshmerga Kurdish forces and Iraqi forces. 

The Iraqi Christian Relief Council reported on Twitter that: “Kurdish Peshmerga have been shooting indiscriminately…to make it appear as though the Iraqi Army is injuring civilians”.

They added: “Three Christian children were caught in the crossfire and injured while playing soccer. One woman was also injured.”

The town’s inhabitants were told by a representative of the Iraqi government that they had “until sunrise to evacuate”, according to Fox News.

The Iraqi army were planning to forcibly remove Peshmerga from Telskuf – which is 19 miles north of Mosul in the morning.

Telskuf was freed from IS control in 2016 and rebuilt with $2 million (£151 milliion) of aid money from Hungary.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
