Al Hamdanyia, North Iraq (AINA) -- Thousands of Assyrians participated in a procession through the Assyrian town of Baghdede to celebrate Palm Sunday according to the Syriac Catholic Church rite. The town of Baghdede lies just a few kilometers from the city of Mosul where there are still terrorist attacks. The overall increase in security is however being felt across Iraq and allowing for increased freedom for religious and national celebrations among the Assyrian community.
