A U.S.-based relief group is reporting 11 Christian workers from Syria were beheaded and hung on crosses last month near Aleppo after Islamic State (ISIS) took over their village. A 12-year-old son of one of the workers also was killed.
Christian Aid said the workers, converts from Islam involved in planting house churches, were encouraged to leave the country by fellow aid workers but chose to stay. According to the ministry team leader:
“They kept on praying loudly and sharing Jesus until their last breath,” he said. “They did this in front of the villagers as a testimony for others.”
