PLEASE PRAY: 9 out of 11 Christian villages evacuated [#TurkeyPersecution #ChristianPersecution] 07/04
Since the beginning of Turkey’s airstrike operations in northern Iraq, 9 of the 11 Christian villages in the Zakho district have reportedly evacuated.
The Turkish Defense Ministry began Operation Eagle Claw in mid-June, bombing alleged Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) positions in Iraqi Kurdistan.
The Turkey-PKK conflict has not only displaced several Christian communities but also severely impacted the livelihood of the civilians staying behind.
Christian villagers complain of serious economic tolls, as agriculture is burned during the airstrikes and tourists are prevented from utilizing the hospitality industry.
