Syrian rebels' missile kills 3 at Armenian Catholic parish in Aleppo
Catholic World News - July 31, 2014
Three people died when a missile launched by Syrian rebels hit an Armenian Catholic parish in Aleppo, the Fides news service reports.
The missile just outside the church, while Mass the faithful were gathered for Mass. The pastor, Father Joseph Bezouzou, explained that casualties would have been much more severe if the attack had come as people were leaving the church. The explosion also broke windows in the church and damaged the altar and the walls.
