August 31, 2013


Large number of Greek Orthodox Palestinian Christians held a sit-in at the courtyard of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher to express sympathy with Syria which is exposed to threats and pressures targeting its stance and national role.

In a speech in front of the participants, Greek Orthodox Archbishop of Sebastia, Atallah Hanna said that we call on all honest people to reject the foreign intervention in Syria which is planned by western countries, particularly the US.

Bishop Hanna added “we believe that the solution in Syria should be politically through dialogue among the Syrians, pointing out that the foreign intervention and the conspiracy are aiming at fragmenting and weakening Syria.”

He called on all the world powers concerned in solving the crisis in Syria to encourage the Syrians to sit around the dialogue table.
