Melkite patriarch decries attacks on Catholic institutions in Syria
April 23, 2014
The head of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church lamented recent bomb attacks on an Armenian Catholic school and a Melkite parish in Syria.
“What is the point of all this carnage tantamount to a war of extermination?” said Patriarch Gregory III Laham, according to a report from Aid to the Church in Need.
“These attacks on our schools, children, churches and homes are criminal attacks with the aim of intimidating Christians who find themselves increasingly targeted,” he added. “Where are the United Nations and the European Union? Do you want to kill this nation?”
