The Rescue Worker Who Refuses To Leave A Bombed-Out Town

The rescue worker who refuses to leave a bombed-out town

Few now remain in Saraqeb, a half-destroyed town in Syria's last opposition-held province, Idlib. Not long ago it was home to more than 60,000 people, but over the last few months most families have fled the incessant bombing, hunger and winter cold. Among the hardened group sticking it out is civil defence volunteer, Laith al-Abdullah.

Before the war 42-year-old Laith worked as an accountant for a local financial exchange company. These days the only counting he does is of people he rescues from piles of rubble. Many of them have been caught in air strikes, carried out by Syrian or Russian bombers, after returning to retrieve valuables from their abandoned homes.

Laith's wife and two young children are among those who have left. He says he's seen too many deaths to risk allowing them to stay.

"Now they are far from me and we sometimes talk via video calls. I do miss them a lot but I'm also relieved that they're not exposed to the same danger as I am," he adds.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
