Iraq is home to one of the oldest Christian communities in the Middle East but tragically, the faith has been heavily targeted by ISIS militants which forced many to flee the city of Mosul. Last week, a video showing young Iraqi Muslim volunteers repairing a Mosul church that was partially destroyed by the extremist group went viral, with 2.5 million views.
“There is no difference between Christians and Muslims,” says one of the volunteers. “We are inviting our Christian brethren to come back to their homes and churches. Mosul is big enough for all of us.”
