BAGHDAD — The alarming trend of property seizures targeting Chaldeans–Syriacs–Assyrians in Baghdad, particularly those who emigrated from Iraq due to security concerns and threats from various groups, continues despite international concerns.

Catholicos-Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East Mar Awa III Royel spoke out against the illegal seizures which further push Christians in Iraq to emigrate.

“This unprecedented phenomenon is deeply concerning for the Christian community in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and Baghdad,” expressed the Patriarch.
