Two people have been killed in a rocket attack on a Greek Orthodox Church in Syria.
The attack saw a large explosion hit directly in front of the Greek Orthodox Hagia Sophia Church in Al-Suqaylabiyah, near the city of Hama.
In addition to the two people killed, a further twelve people were injured.
The rockets are believed to have been fired by "terrorists"; the organisation in question has not been specified, but it's suggested they are Turkish-backed non-state actors.
The building was erected to be a mini "replica" of the Hagia Sophia church, in Istanbul, shortly after the original building was converted into a mosque.
The Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch, John X, condemned the attack saying: "Our children in Suqaylabiyah are paying the price of their faith with blood.
"What happened in Suqaylabiyah is a despicable and reprehensible act of terrorism."
Jeff King, President of International Christian Concern, said, "We are saddened by the news of Sunday's attack against Christians in Syria. Throughout the civil war, we have seen the Syrian government,
Turkey, Russia, and others compete for influence across the country.
"Sunday's attack is a painful reminder that this competition repeatedly places innocent Christians in the crossfire of regional violence.
"Warring parties in Syria have once again shown unacceptable disregard for civilian life.
"Our prayers are with the victims of this attack."
