ICSPR visits the Church of the Latin Monastery in Gaza to celebrate Christmas with Christian brothers.
Occupied Palestine/Gaza: The International Commission to Support Palestinians’ Rights “ICSPR” and “Basmat Amal” youth team visited the Church of the Latin Monastery in Gaza City, to celebrate Christmas with Christian brothers.
The participating delegation included activities coordinator Ibrahim Al-Ghandour, journalist Asaad Al-Beiruti, and members of the Basmat Amal youth team affiliated with ICSPR.
On his part, Father Gabriel Romanelli, pastor of the Latin Church in Gaza, said: “Christians are not a community as many believe, but they are the sons of Palestine, and it is good to maintain bilateral relations between Muslims and Christians, pointing out that the Patriarch, upon his recent visit to the city of Bethlehem to celebrate the birth of Christ, focused on the necessity of supporting the rights of the Palestinian people, including the right to travel, as it is an internationally guaranteed right.”
He stressed the need to resist the occupation by peaceful means away from any other methods, indicating that the clergy pray not only for Christians but Muslims as well, expressing his regret that the Palestinian is considered a criminal just because he was born in this land, which is not acceptable to God.
