Patriarch Laham Says Takfiri Groups Target All Syrians

Laham said radicals are affecting all components of Syrian society, and pointed to the recent massacre in Adra as proof

The Greek Melkite Catholic Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, Gregory III Laham said the terrorist acts committed by takfiri groups target all Syrians without exception.

 

In an interview with the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar, Laham asserted that radicals are affecting all components of Syrian society, and pointed to the recent massacre in Adra as proof. He said the terrorists are committing acts of vandalism, murder and displacement, affecting all Syrians without exception.

 

Laham noted that the majority of Syrians displaced by terrorism are Muslims, and that around 500 mosques and 60 churches had been vandalized, stressing that radicals are alien from Syrian culture and that have corrupted the opposition.

 

Laham confirmed his adherence to Syria and said that attempts to uproot Christians from the country will fail, describing those who count on Christians leaving Syria as “delusional”.
