The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the civilians were taken on Thursday in the town of Al-Qaryatain, which ISIS jihadists had captured late Wednesday.
‘Daesh kidnapped at least 230 people, including at least 60 Christians, during a sweep through Al-Qaryatain,’ Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said, using another name for ISIS.
Many of the Christians had fled from Aleppo province, in Syria’s north, to seek refuge in Al-Qaryatain.
He said those abducted were wanted by ISIS for ‘collaborating with the regime,’ and their names were on a list used by the jihadists as they swept through the town.
Families who tried to flee or hide were tracked down and taken by the jihadists, he said.
Al-Qaryatain lies at the crossroads between ISIS territory in the eastern countryside of Homs and areas further west in the Qalamun area.
It had a pre-war population of 18,000, including Sunni Muslims and around 2,000 Syriac Catholics and Orthodox Christians.
According to a Syrian Christian who lives in Damascus but is originally from Al-Qaryatain, the town’s Christian population has dropped to only 300.” Read more.

And the taking of innocent lives, idolizing Mohammed and his words, bowing down to the Kaaba, touching and kissing the sacred Black Stone, incessant immoral sexual behavior, and the complete expropriation of people and property through violent jihadist warfare for the cause of Allah and his religion, particularly against Jews and Christians, are given absolute sanction under Islamic law. Such “good Muslim conduct” is a definite reflection of the key behaviors outlined by the followers of the Beast in Revelation. It is unadulterated lawlessness that necessitates unending war against the God of Israel in order to bring about the desired destruction of the Israel of God.” Read more.
