Syrian rebels publish video of
unharmed convent in Maalula

Maalula

A video published by Syrian rebels on Monday showed footage of the Saint Takla convent in the Christian town of Maalula in an attempt to refute rumors that it was damaged by them.

 

The rebels wandered through monastery showing various parts of the structure.

 

The man speaking in the video said that the Syrian regime shells targeted the convent and zoomed in to a spot in the rocks that was damaged by a shell.

 

On Sunday, Syrian rebels, including jihadists linked to Al-Qaeda, took control of the historic Christian town of Maalula, north of Damascus, a watchdog and a resident said.

 

Maalula is home to around 5,000 residents and is of strategic importance for the rebels, who are trying to tighten their grip around the capital Damascus, adding a northern post to existing bases in the south and west of the city.
