Mosul (AINA) -- According to the Arabic language website ankawa.com, an Assyrian man was killed in Mosul by Muslim terrorists on Tuesday, November 30. The man was identified as Fadi Walid Gabriel, 25, a member of the Syriac Orthodox Church. The killing of Mr. Gabriel brings to 8 the number of Assyrians killed since the Baghdad Church massacre on October 31, when Al-Qaeda affiliated Islamic terrorists stormed Our Lady of Deliverance Syriac Catholic church, killing 58 Assyrians.
A genocide of Assyrians (report) has been ongoing in Iraq since June 26, 2004, when the first church was bombed. 66 churches have been bombed since then, and thousands of Assyrians killed. Nearly 50% of Assyrians have fled to Syria and Jordan (report).
