Breitbart: Syriac Christian Militia Denounces Assad, ‘Other Backward, Extreme, and Terrorist Groups’

Excerpt: “All Christians who live in western Syria and close to [the Syrian capital] Damascus are aligned with the Syrian government,” argued retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Sargis Sangari, the head of the Near East Center for Strategic Engagement and expert on Assyrian Christian issues.”

He added that Christians in al-Hasakah and in eastern Syria “must stick with the Kurds and other power brokers in the east, including those aligned with either Russia or Turkey for survival.”

“The Christians in the middle sections of Syria (Homs-Damascus area) are mostly Arab Christians who maintain a force of about 20,000 fighters supported by the Assad regime,” also said Col. Sangari, who also serves as an adviser for the Iraq-based Assyrian Army known as Dwekh Nawsha.
