Bassil seeks unified effort to protect Syrian Christians
A+ A-

BEIRUT: Caretaker Energy Minister Gebran Bassil called for forming a Lebanese delegation to tour countries with influence on the “terrorist movements” in Syria and ask them to mediate in halting the attacks on Christians there. 

Bassil’s remarks were made following a meeting with Maronite Patriarch Beshara Rai in Bkirki. 

“The Christians in Lebanon should have a stance on what is happening in Maaloula, which is different from just denunciation or condemnation,” Bassil said. 

“What is happening doesn’t affect only the Christians but also the Muslims.” 

Lebanon must form a delegation to tour countries with influence on extremist factions in Syria so they’ll stop committing acts of what he called genocide and turning Christians in human shields Bassil said.
