Iraq: Church bells ring again for Christmas in liberated city of Mosul (Video)

On the eve of Christmas, church bells have rung out again at Saint Paul’s Church in Mosul for the first time in three years, after the city was liberated from Daesh.

Both Christians and Muslims attended a special service in the Church to mark the birth of Jesus. When Daesh took Mosul, the city’s Christian population was persecuted, with many being forced to leave. Since Iraqi forces recaptured the northern city in July 2017, its former Christian population has slowly begun to return, presstv.com reported.
