Til Tamir (KDN) – ISIS terrorists have destroyed another ancient Assyrian church in Tel Nasri village of newly liberated Til Tamir in northern Syria, Kurdish sources claim.

According to reports, ISIS terrorists blew up the ancient Assyrian church early on Easter Sunday, using explosives and reducing it to the ground.

In February Islamic terrorists attacked Assyrian villages in the Khabur valley, kidnapping hundreds of people and killing dozens. Some other churches in the region also were hit by mortar shells and set alight during last attacks by ISIS.
