Iraqi Christians protected by Kurdish Peshmerga

Yohanna Petros Moshe, the archbishop of Mosul, who lives in Qaraqosh, recently wrote a letter to the prime minister of the Kurdish autonomous region thanking him for his help and for the Peshmerga fighters. “If we were to write a letter to Baghdad, we’d never get an answer,” he says. “Only the Kurds express any interest in us. Perhaps it’s because they were also oppressed.”
