Syria: Maronite Cathedral reopens in Aleppo following restoration

Aleppo's Maronite Cathedral of Mar Elias (Saint Elijah) reopened on Monday, following extensive restoration from damage caused by the Syrian war. The reopening saw Mar Youssef Toubaji, the Maronite Archbishop of Aleppo, holding a service attended by dozens of people. The cathedral is located in Aleppo's Christian quarter of al-Jdayde, and bears the name of the biblical prophet Elijah. The place of worship was built in 1873, and later renovated in 1914.​ The Cathedral had reportedly been hit by missiles at least three times between 2012 and 2016. The roof had been almost completely destroyed.
