It has been revealed that Christian militants in Switzerland are traveling to the Middle-East to fight for Christians in Iraq and Syria.

Germany's Focus magazine ran an article titled 'Christian Union against Terrorism' which claimed that so far at least 10 Christians have gone to Iraq to fight.

The article, which cites Switzerland's Sonntags Zeitung newspaper, said that money is also being collected in the country to support the Christian militants who trained in secret camps.

In the past two years, Syriac Christians in Switzerland have raised as much as 200,000 Franks, according to Focus. The Syriac Military Council in northern Syria have also reportedly accepted the Christian Union militants from Switzerland into their midst.

SVP politician Lukas Reimann warned that those who are participating in the war in the Middle-East are in breach of Swiss law.

Meanwhile, a number of Catholics are also said to be traveling to the Vatican to defend Pope Francis, believing that he may be the next target of self-styled 'Islamic State' fighters in Iraq and Syria, Il Tempo newspaper claimed.
