The sources also said that only 3 of 250 Christian families remained in Afrin and its villages. Those 3 families can't go out of their houses only for insuring daily needs because of annoyance of the military factions and Turkish soldiers against them. Other families displaced to al-Shahba canton and Aleppo city.
Valentine Hannan, the clergyman of the church has called for the international community after two days of the Turkish attack on Afrin. He demanded an international protection for Afrin urgently and stopping the bombardment. He said, ''We are exposing this moment to a heavy bombardment and the Islamic factions promise to enter the area. We, as a church, ask the God to protect and our brothers to pray for us and help us too.”
It is worth mentioning that the number of the Christians in Afrin city’s center and its villages was 250 distributed as follow: 190 families in Afrin city, 45 in Janders district and 15 others in Mabata district.
