Muslims and Christians pray at Aleppo church in show of inter-faith unity
ALEPPO, JAN 06, (DNA) – As rebels, Al-Qaeda, Daesh and Assad fight for control of war-ravaged Aleppo— hundreds of Muslims, Christians and Armenian gathered at a church to pray for peace, in an extra-ordinary show of inter-faith harmony.
The prayers held at the Central Church in Eastern Aleppo was also attended by three French parliamentarians.
The six-year long war has taken a toll especially on the youth who pray for a peaceful city. “I pray for not just a peaceful Aleppo but all of Syria,” said a young man attending the service.
Although bombings have come to a halt in Aleppo following ceasefire, the peace remains shaky and citizens of the war-torn city are fearful of the ceasefire falling apart.
Despite the uncertainty however, people here have not abandoned hope and continue to pray for peace.=DNA
