Aleppo bombers 'accountable to God,' Pope warns

September 28, 2016

Stating that those who are bombing Aleppo will be “accountable to God,” Pope Francis appealed for peace in the Syrian city.

“In expressing my deep sorrow and lively concern for what is happening in that already battered city – where children, the elderly, the sick, young and old, all are dying – I renew my appeal to everyone to commit themselves with all their strength to the protection of civilians as an imperative and urgent obligation,” he said on September 28, following his general audience.
