Meeting with the Christian Leaders in Qamishly


During his special visit to Qamishly after the recent events that took place and resulted in the martyrdom of 13 Christians, His Holiness Patriarch Mor Ignatius Aphrem II called for an urgent meeting of the Christian leaders from all denominations in the city.

The meeting aimed at the discussion of recent developments in the area as well as the situation of Christians in Qamishly following the events that took place on December 30, 2015 and recently on January 12, 2016.

His Holiness listened to the views, analyses of the representatives of the Churches in Qamishly as well as the suggested solutions that might help put an end to the attacks on Christians in the city.

The meeting was also attended by His Grace Mor Georges Kourieh, Dean of Mor Aphrem Theological Seminary in Maarat Saydnaya, who is accompanying His Holiness during the visit as well as the priests of our Syriac Orthodox Churches in Qamishly and members of the Church Council in Qamishly.
