Alqosh traces its history back into the ancient Assyrian empire. The earliest mentioning of Alqosh appears in the Assyrian king Sennacherib's era 750 BC as evidenced by the mural inside Sennacherib's palace that was discovered in Tel Kuyunjik/Qüyüjik in Nineveh, Assyria. Behind this mural, the phrase "This rock was brought from Alqosh’s Mountain" is carved.
Igår var det andra advent och därmed hade vi vår andra adventsaktivitet med våra underbara barn. Vi pysslade, hade frågesport, körde roliga lekar och avslutade dagen med en femkamp. Vi ses igen nästa söndag då ett syrianskt juldisco väntar
