Patriarch Yazigi: Terrorism is alien to Syrians and their history

Hama, SANA – Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and All East John X Yazigi on Saturday visited the city of Mhardeh and the town of Kafr Bahm as part of a visit to Hama province.

Patriarch Yazigi said that terrorism and the takfiri mentality have no place in Syria as they are alien to Syrians and their history, asserting that Syria’s Christians will remain in their homeland no matter how many ordeals they face.

The Patriarch delivered a sermon at St. George Church in Mhardeh, in which he prayed for peace in Syria and called for the immediate release of the abducted bishops John Ibrhaim and Paul Yazigi who were abducted by terrorists in Aleppo nearly two years ago.

He also presided upon prayers in St. Elias Church in Kafr Bahm, where he later met families of martyrs and offered them condolences.
