Security Challenges Impact Iraqi Christians Return

February 28, 2019

02/16/2019 Iraq (International Christian Concern) – The security situation in previously held ISIS territory continues to remain fluid, impacting rebuilding efforts and causing Christian returnees to again leave their homes as internally displaced persons (IDPs), reports Rudaw.

The Rudaw report specifically highlights the Zayoona camp, which has seen a number of displaced Christians return back after attempting to rebuild their lives in the Nineveh Plains. This repeated displacement has had a long-lasting impact on the desire of Christians to remain in Iraq. Many have relatives living outside of the country, creating a strong sense of loneliness and isolation throughout displacement.

Meanwhile, ISIS continues to cause security problems just south of the Nineveh Plains, which is where most of Iraq’s Christians live. Recently, the Iraqi army and Nineveh Police joined forces to conduct a security operation just south of Mosul. During this operation, 4 members of ISIS were killed and 30 civilians freed.

Although ISIS was declared militarily defeated in December 2017, sleeper cells continue throughout the region. Their presence and competing militias create a worrisome atmosphere for Christians otherwise interested in returning home.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
