Syria is said to be a secular country which guarantees religious freedom. While that has never been the case, the country’s Christians were able to live their faith without experiencing any serious problems up to 2010. Many church leaders hope that situation will return, as do many Christians. The civil war has already cost over 500,000 lives, 6.5 million Syrians are now internally displaced persons and there are almost 5 million refugees. The number of Christians has dropped by half. They have fled the war, the regime and the Islamists. Will they return to Syria once the conflict is over?
