In holy Ramadan Iraqi Christians Invite Muslims to Iftar banquet

In the holy month of Ramadan, Iraqi Christians have set up Iftar booths in different cities, offering food, water and dates to fasting Muslims to break their fast after evening Adhan (call to prayers).

According to al-Mashreq News, Christian churches in Baghdad open their door to Muslims and distribute Iftar packages among them.

Iraqi Christians are also involved in aid campaigns, collecting food, water and medicine to send to the Iraqi popular forces fighting the ISIL terrorist group.

These gestures of unity and amity between Christians and Muslims come despite the attempts by ISIL to spread sectarian, religious and tribal conflicts in the Arab country.

The ISIL militants made swift advances in much of northern and western Iraq over the last summer, after capturing large swaths of northern Syria.

However, a combination of concentrated attacks by the Iraqi military and the volunteer forces, who rushed to take arms after top Iraqi cleric Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani issued a fatwa calling for fight against the militants, have blunted the edge of the ISIL offensive.
