Syria's Civil War Forcing Christians to Take Sides

Ad Feedback

Christians are being drawn into the civil war in Syria, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Fighting has spread in Damascus and Aleppo, the country's two largest cities where many Christians live.

Now, those Christians are being forced to take sides. Residents say the regime is arming loyalists there to fight the rebels.

Many Christians are either neutral or loyal to Bashar al-Assad's secular regime because he has limited the influence of radical Islamists in Syria.
