Syrian Christians face bleak Christmas: Video

The foreign-backed militants not only target Muslims in Syria, but also religious minorities like Christians.

The terrorist groups have attacked churches, killed Christians and kidnapped several priests and nuns during the nearly three years of conflict in the country.

As Christmas approaches, however, Syria's two million Christians are not celebrating.

They are worrying. If an extremist government replaces the government of President Bashar al-Assad, they wonder what the future will be for Syria's religious minorities.
