Lebanese bishops back efforts against terrorism

Catholic World News - August 11, 2014

Lebanon's Maronite Catholic bishops have issued a statement of support for their country's military in its campaign against Islamic terrorism.

The Maronite bishops expressed "full confidence" in Lebanon's military leadership, and invited other countries to join in the fight against the encroachment of Islamic militants, especially in Syria and Iraq. “We call upon the international community to take the necessary measures to stop the crimes against humanity that are being committed in Mosul,” the Lebanese prelates added.
