Keramlis, a Christian town on the Nineveh Plains in northern Iraq, fell to ISIS in August 2014, sending its inhabitants fleeing. The town was retaken by Iraq forces three weeks ago as part of the push for Mosul, but most of its homes were destroyed in the process.

As the US marks a year since its first airstrikes against ISIS, the Islamic terror group advanced towards a Syrian town, causing hundreds of Christians to flee.

Islamic State terrorists reportedly blew up a church in northeastern Syria on Easter Sunday – the latest in a series of attacks by ISIS on Christian targets.
