[VIDEO] Cross Restored Atop Christian Church After Area Is Reclaimed From ISIS

Local residents and Kurdish militia fighters have restored a cross to the top of Saint George’s church in the Iraqi town of Bashiqa. The cross was destroyed by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) jihadists after they captured the town two years ago.

The restoration was made possible after Bashiqa and its twin village Bahzani were recaptured by Peshmerga fighters earlier this month.

Reverend Afram al-Khoury Benyamen and other returning priests, who had just several days to clean up the mess left by retreating IS militants, then led observers in a prayer.
