Syria: nuncio condemns Tremseh attack, renews call for UN action

Catholic World News - July 16, 2012

Pope Benedict’s representative in Syria has condemned military action by the Assad regime that left 200 dead in the village of Tremseh.

“The inactivity of the United Nations could be understood as a permission to continue to kill, to commit atrocities,” said Archbishop Mario Zenari. “Of course we must also be optimistic because at the end, God has in his hands the history, even if he permits that we are going through some difficulties.”
