Marked for Destruction: The Plight of Syria's Christians with Syrian Christian Leaders

On Monday, January 27th, the first delegation of Syrian Church leaders to visit the United States since the start of the civil war will give remarks at The Heritage Foundation about the current crisis facing Christians in Syria. The delegation is visiting the U.S. between January 25–29th to raise awareness of the threats against Christians in Syria and the growing plight that they face. The visit will provide opportunities for these Church leaders to discuss various options and steps that can be taken by the global community to protect Christians and religious minorities in Syria.
