Inter-faith harmony: Muslims, Christians pray at Aleppo church

As rebels, Al-Qaeda, Daesh and Assad fight for control of war-ravaged Aleppo— hundreds of Muslims, Christians and Armenian gathered at a church to pray for peace, in an extra-ordinary show of inter-faith harmony.

The prayers held at the Central Church in Eastern Aleppo was also attended by three French parliamentarians.

The six-year long war has taken a toll especially on the youth who pray for a peaceful city. “I pray for not just a peaceful Aleppo but all of Syria,” said a young man attending the service.

Although bombings have come to a halt in Aleppo following the ceasefire, the peace remains shaky and citizens of the war-torn city are fearful of the ceasefire falling apart.

Despite the uncertainty, however, people here have not abandoned hope and continue to pray for peace.
