In this Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 photo, Syrian citizens walk in front of a damaged Syrian army tank, seen in the background, at the Christian village of Judeida, in Idlib province, Syria. Yacobiyeh and its neighbors, Judeida and Quniya, are some of the first Christian villages to be taken by the rebel Syrian Army. The rebels stormed these hilltop villages in late January, after the army used it as a base to shell nearby rebel-controlled areas. The villages are largely empty due to the fighting, with a few mostly elderly Christians -- including Roman Catholics and Armenian Orthodox _ living among Sunni Muslim refugees who have moved up here from the plains. They still face sporadic artillery bombardment from below. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
