Vad som hände när USA's allierade erövrade den lilla kristna staden i Syrien

Ni kanske minns bloggen med videon om den världsarvsskyddade lilla staden med främst kristna i Syrien som erövrades av de USA allierade samtidigt som deras enda hopp, regeringsstyrkorna hotades av flyganfall.

Nu vet vi lite mer om hur livet var under tiden innan Assads styrkor befriade staden.

One Maaloula resident said the rebels, many of whom had beards and shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ (God is great), attacked Christian homes and churches shortly after moving into the village. 

‘They shot and killed people. I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village. Where is President Obama to see what has befallen us?’

Another Christian resident said: ‘I saw the militants grabbing five villagers and threatening them and saying, “Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded”.’

Another said one church had been torched, and gunmen stormed into two other churches and robbed them.
The beautiful mountain village, 25 miles from Damascus, is one of the few places in the world where residents still use the ancient language of Aramaic, which was spoken by Jesus and his disciples.
