More Christian Priests Suddenly Go Missing in Syria

 
 
 Last week’s disappearance of an Italian Jesuit priest in Syria  suggested foul play following the kidnappings of two other  clergy in April, according to Morning Star News. 
The Rev. Paolo  Dall’Oglio was reportedly negotiating with the Al Qaeda-linked  Islamic State of Iraq for the release of hostages and peace  between its militants and the Kurds. After Dall’Oglio went  missing on July 29, Reuters reported that the Al Qaeda affiliate  had kidnapped him.

Dall’Oglio’s disappearance comes three months after the  kidnappings of the Greek Orthodox and Syriac Orthodox  archbishops of Aleppo; Paul Yazigi and Yohanna Ibrahim were  both kidnapped after gunmen intercepted their vehicle and  killed its driver near Kafr Dael as the clergymen returned from a  humanitarian relief mission on April 22. They are both believed  to be held by Chechen jihadists.
