This video footage shows smoke coming out from Holy Cross Church for the Armenian Orthodox in the city of Tal Abyad in Syria's nothern province of al-Raqqa. Those responsible for the fire are Hamza Brigades, most likely the ones belonging to the Islamist Movement of Ahrar al-Sham (Free [Men] of the Levant).
The title from the original uploader refers to the name of the church as "Independence Church", whereas the actual footage shows the name written in Arabic as "Holy Cross for the Armenian Orthodox".
