Hezbollah condemns beheading of French priest

NNA – Hezbollah sternly condemned, in a statement on Tuesday, “the horrific crime perpetrated by terrorist ISIS thugs, who beheaded a French priest inside his church and took other hostages.”

“Hezbollah expresses condolences to the victim’s family and the French and world church family, as well as the entire French people,” the party said.

“This horrific crime drives us to stand in the face of the states and governments that have backed, financed, and covered terrorists,” it underlined, calling for a unified serious position against terrorism and “regional and international sponsors.”
