Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has made a visit to a Christian church in an eastern suburb of the capital Damascus as Christmas is approaching.
Assad made the surprise visit to the Lady of Damascus Catholic Church with his wife Asma on Friday evening where they watched a choir rehearse and took pictures with members of the congregation.
The eastern suburb of Damascus where the church is situated has been a target of Syrian rebels fighting against the government.
