From the Melkite Greek Patriarchate in Damascus: A list of churches and monasteries and shrines damaged in the Syrian crisis, as at 22-11-13

This list has been assembled by the Patriarchate after exhaustive research and accompanies Patriarch Gregorios' plea (see the following post): "Why attack places of worship?"

To this list, His Beatitude adds this question: "Must all churches, mosques, homes and villages be destroyed in order to end the war on Syria?!"
