OCP News Service – 11/4/19

Global: ISIS is defeated. The conflict in Syria has almost come to an end. However, the fate of the kidnapped Orthodox Christian Bishops of Aleppo remains a mystery. April 2019 marks the sixth anniversary of the abduction of the Orthodox Prelates of Aleppo.

Syriac Orthodox Archbishop Yohanna Ibrahim and Greek Orthodox Archbishop Boulos Yazigi were kidnapped by the militants in April 2013, while they were returning back from the Turkish border to their city of Aleppo, after negotiating the release of two kidnapped priests. It is believed that their kidnappers were Chechen terrorists.
