Continued violence in Syria will lead to humanitarian catastrophe – Russian Patriarch Kirill


Russian Patriarch Kirill has warned that continued violence in Syria will create a humanitarian catastrophe, cost countless lives and leave the country in ruins.

Emerging from a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Moscow Friday, he also pointed out that the Syrian crisis can only be resolved through a peaceful dialogue.

This Friday marks two years since the start of the foreign-backed anti-government rebellion in Syria.
