Why does the Syrian city of Homs have a mosque?

Jumeirahs mosque is one of several mosques in the Syrian capital which is often used by religious minorities, including members of the Assyrian Christian community.

It is situated on the northern edge of Homs, on a road that is dotted with small houses and shops.

There is a mosque in each of the city’s neighbourhoods, including the eastern city of Madaya.

The majority of worshippers come from outside the city. 

Jumeirat Masjid, a building that stands on the same street as the city mosque, was originally built in 1928.

The mosque was rebuilt in 1967 and is now home to several different denominations of Islam, including Sunni Islam, Shi’ite Islam and Sufi Islam.

The most famous of these is the Imamat, or Grand Mosque, which has been used as a mosque since the 12th century. 

In recent years, the number of pilgrims from Syria has increased and the number is estimated to be at least 150,000. 

According to the Syrian Centre for Religion and Culture, more than 80% of the people of Homs are Sunni Muslim, the rest of the population is Druze, Christians, and others. 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition monitoring group, says that more than 400 mosques have been built in the capital since the civil war broke out in 2011. 

However, there are many smaller mosques in Damascus, including some of the oldest and most religious structures in the city, which are often used as places of worship. 

As well as the mosque in Jumeireh, the Syrian Observatory has also documented numerous mosques in Homs, including those of the Yazidi community. 

Many of the mosques in Syria are owned and run by the religious minority community, and have been used by many people from all walks of life.

The Imamat mosque in Damascus is also one of many structures used as churches in the historic Christian quarter of the Syrian quarter of Old Damascus.

The Yazidi population in the old city of Old Homs have suffered a lot since the country’s civil war. 

“The Yazidis have been living in Old Damascus for over 300 years, and they have always been a part of the community.

As a result, the Imamata mosque in Old Homs was constructed by the Yazidis,” said Fathi Al-Kasim, the head of the Christian Association in Old Syrian Damascus.

“As the population in Old Syria has been affected by the war, the situation for Yazidis has deteriorated and there are now many cases of kidnapping, violence and rape.” 

 However it is not just the Yazid community that has suffered.

Al-Khateeb, the governor of Old Syrian Homs, has also said that there are at least 20 mosques and churches in Old Town that are also used by the minority community.

Al Khateeb said that the Imamati mosque is in Old City, a predominantly Christian neighbourhood that is home to many churches and mosques. 

This is not the first time that Christians have suffered in Syria.

In 2013, a number of churches were demolished and their churches destroyed by Islamic State militants, which resulted in the loss of thousands of Christian properties and their buildings. 

There are also a number churches in Homs which were damaged during the Arab Spring protests, and some are still standing. 

 In 2015, a Christian family of three was forced to flee from Homs to Lebanon and now lives in the refugee camps in Lebanon. 

Beside the Imamatis mosque, the other large building of worship is the Basilica of Saint Nicholas, which is a large church and is used as the main mosque of the Basilicas of Damascus and Beirut. 

Homs also has a number religious and cultural centres, which includes the St Pauls and the Basilicom of Antioch, which can be visited by tourists. 

Despite its small size, the city of Jumeira has long been known as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. 

One of the best-known mosques in Jameira is the Masjidi Mosque, one of two that are located on the opposite side of the street from the old mosque in Madaya and in Old town. 

During the time of the Arab revolt in Syria, many Christians fled from the country to neighbouring Lebanon, but the majority have been resettled into other parts of the country. 

At the same time, the government of Syria has also introduced a number measures to stop the influx of foreign fighters into the country, and in 2015, the country enacted a law which requires foreigners to leave the country in a certain period of time and not to return until they have completed their training. 

Some of the biggest cities in Syria have also been among the most popular tourist destinations, as shown by the number and popularity of foreign visitors. 

A number of international tourist destinations in the Middle East and North Africa are located in the region, including Cairo,
