Aleppo, Syria, Aug 27, 2013 / 12:33 pm
The bishop of Aleppo, Syria, has cautioned that foreign military action in the country could spark a global war, making the "tragic situation" much worse.
"The only road to peace is dialogue," said Bishop Antoine Audo on Aug. 27. "War will not take us anywhere."
"People live in anguish, not knowing what awaits them, and this has been happening during the two years of conflict," he told Missionary International Service News Agency.
The bishop of Aleppo, one of the cities worst affected by the turmoil, is also the president of Caritas Syria.
