#Syria regime displacing Christians from central #Damascus: activists

BEIRUT – A Syrian Christian opposition group has voiced fears that the Bashar al-Assad regime is seeking to displace Christians from the historic center of Damascus, known popularly as the Old City.

In a statement issued Sunday, the Syrian Christians for Peace warned of the “deliberate and systemic [efforts] to displace the remaining Christians from the Old City of Damascus.”

The humanitarian organization—which seeks to challenge the narrative of Christian support for the regime—said that the government was purposely ruining the “security and moral” situation of Christian quarters in the Old City in a bid to “prompt [Christians] to sell their homes.”
