ACERO confirms with great joy and praise to Almighty God the good news that 25 Assyrian Christian hostages kidnapped from the Assyrian villages along the Khabur river in Syria were released today, 9 December 2015.
The released hostages have arrived safely in Tel Tamer and are pictured here being welcomed by His Grace Mar Afram Athneil, Bishop of Syria and Chairman of ACERO.
ACERO thanks all its supporters for their ongoing kindness and generosity. We will provide these newly released hostages with food, clothing, medication, shelter and whatever support that may be required.
We continue to pray and work for the release of those who remain captive.
