admin | 09 November 2016
A Syrian Orthodox cleric who was wounded by gunfire in Aleppo on November 6 is expected to make a full recovery.

Msgr. Raban Boutros Kassis, the Syrian Orthodox patriarchal vicar for Aleppo, Syria, was hit twice in the shoulder by rifle fire as he drove toward his residence in Aleppo. Surgery to remove the bullets was successful.

“I thank God who protected and kept me alive,” the Orthodox cleric said to the Fides news service. “I thank God because in this condition and in this experience I can share the cross that so many people today suffer in Syria, especially in Aleppo.”
