We are witnessing again another crime against Iraqi Christians by killing one of its young men who was on his way back from work when a group of people ambushed his car and killed him. The victim is a Syriac Catholic Church Member, was born in 1976 to a family who inhabited Kirkuk city (the rich Oil city in Iraq). And lived there peacefully along with other Iraqi components who share the same land and the same culture.
The victim whose name is (Hani Salim) was buried in the Church’s yard, during his funeral, many clergies and church members as well as families, friends and others joined the prayer wishing a good farewell to the Christian victim.
The attacks against Christians have been intensified and forced thousands of them to escape Iraq seeking refuge in other countries. The recent attack that targeted Christian students resulted the death of 2 Christian students triggered panic again among Iraqi Christians who are being targeted by militias and other groups, who desperately try to eliminate this component (Christian component) aiming and struggling that this component leave Iraq by all means, fulfilling interior and other foreign agendas of neighboring countries whose goal is to control Iraq and Iraqi people and reject any kind of freedom to be granted to them after overthrowing a tyrannical regime that ruled more than 35 years.
