The Best Christmas Present

“The best Christmas present would be to cancel the sanctions against the Syrian people” says Bishop Georges Abou Khazen, the Apostolic Vicar of Aleppo.

The Western block, led by the United States, realised “that it could not win the war militarily, so it chose to choke Syria economically. This is a crime against humanity because these people are not guilty,” said Bishop Abou Khazen. “Furthermore, it is not true that the fighting is over; what is certain is that poverty has increased, and medicines are in short supply, made worse by the pandemic.”

Syria is “rich in wheat, mineral resources, oil, and gas, especially in the US-controlled Northeast controlled, which it cannot use even to heat private homes.”

In this context, “unlike in many other countries, the coronavirus is not ‘the’ problem but one of the many we have to face.”

Despite the siege and bombs, Christmas during the war did not present the same difficulties,” said the prelate. “It was perhaps easier for people to meet the needs of daily life. Today many things are not available, from fruit to meat, which remains a dream for the vast majority.”

Syria White Helmets Exposed

 

Msgr. Georges Abou Khazen says civilians in the city are “under continuous bombardment”. 

Aleppo (AsiaNews) – “We have been under continuous bombardment over the past few days in Aleppo with civilian deaths, injuries and destruction.” Last night “in our neighborhoods we had four dead and over 15 injured, in addition to homes and buildings damaged. And these attacks are being carried out by the so-called “moderate opposition groups”.

This is the desperate appeal launched by the Apostolic Vicar of Aleppo of the Latins, Mons. Georges Abou Khazen, who in a message sent to AsiaNews points his finger at the front defended – and supported – by the West, along with Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

“These bombings – says the prelate – are from the front of the so-called ‘moderates’, and as such defended, protected and reinforced. In reality are no different from other jihadists [Islamic State (IS) and the Nusra Front] except in name only. ”

The Apostolic Vicar of Aleppo, who in recent days had already reported that “foreign terrorists” and not the Syrians to want to continue the conflict, said that “foreign jihadists have been given the green light to intensify the bombing of civilians.”

The prelate believes this escalation masks the desire to “derail the peace negotiations” by “regional forces – for weeks Saudi Arabia and Turkey have been pressing for the sending of ground troops”. “Behind this strategy – questions the prelate – is there the desire to prevent the regular army to advance and liberate the region from terrorism and the jihadists?”.
