BEIRUT, (ST)- The Executive Committee of the Middle East Council of Churches has renewed its call for lifting the unfair economic blockade imposed on the Syrian people.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Committee said that the suffering of the Syrian people because of the war and the siege necessitates exerting all efforts to lift the sanctions, help the Syrians, who were displaced because of terrorism, return home and continue confronting extremism and terrorism in Syria.

The statement reiterated that Christians in the East are deeply-rooted in their land and they will continue to adhere to their homeland, heritage and identity.

It highlighted the Christians’ role in enhancing coexistence, mutual respect and social solidarity and cooperation between the churches of the Middle East, hailing the Palestinian churches’ role in solidifying the steadfastness of the Palestinian people in the face of the Israeli occupation and its racist and expansionist policies.
