That’s how Mgr. Jeanclement Jeanbart, the Greek-Melkite Archbishop of Aleppo, describes to Asia News the absence of any information about the current fate of Yohanna Ibrahim and Boulos Yazigi, respective heads of the Syriac and Greek Orthodox Churches in Aleppo. They were kidnapped on April, and little information has emerged since.

‘In good health’

That’s how Acting President of the Syrian National Council George Sabra describes the bishops’ current condition to Kataeb Party leader Amin Gemayel, meeting with Syriac Orthodox bishops in Saifi, according to Lebanon’s Daily Star

“The bishops are in good health and are being held by a small group in a town called Bshaqtin, 20 kilometers north west of Aleppo,” Sabra is quoted as saying.
