Syria: Statement of the Custody

The Custody of the Holy Land confirms that fr. Hanna JALLOUF OFM, of the Custody of the Holy Land, parish priest at Knayeh (Qunayeh), Syria, on the night of October 5th, was taken by some brigades linked to Jahbat Al-Nusra. Along with fr. Hanna, several men of the Christian village were also taken.

The Franciscan nuns who were in the convent have taken refuge in some houses of the village.

We are not able to say where father Hanna and his parishioners are now and, at this time, we have no possibility of contact with him or his captors.

Let us pray for him and for the other victims of this tragic and senseless war.
