ISIS abducted 62-year-old Nabil Habashi Salama last November.
Nabil was a successful businessman in Bir Al-Abed where he also built the town’s only church. ISIS killed him as a warning to Christians in the area.
Nabil’s son Peter said, “We were forced to close our businesses and leave our homes to another city and we continue to receive threats. . . . In [the militant’s] efforts to have him abandon the faith, they humiliated my father, and broke all his teeth to torture him. Yet, through all this, he held on, and we are so joyful for him.”
