IRAQ – BOMBS DETONATED OUTSIDE CHURCHES

In July, Christians came under attack as a number of bombs were detonated outside Christian sites across Baghdad and Mosul. Seven churches were badly damaged in the attacks, with one building being set ablaze. In Baghdad, a car bomb was timed to explode outside a prominent church just as worshippers were leaving the Sunday evening service; this resulted in the deaths of four Christians and left dozens injured.
Authorities in the northern city of Mosul responded to the explosions by introducing temporary curfews in Christian neighbourhoods. Allegedly, these are to provide protection to the community, but they are thought unlikely to prevent similar attacks from being staged. • Pray that the Christians injured in the explosions and the families of those killed will stand firm in their faith. • Pray that Iraqi Christians will forgive those responsible for the bombs and that the attackers will repent and come to know the Lord Jesus.
