everal Franciscans, four nuns and 10 Christians also lived at the monastery, which was considered safe until the raid, according to Pizzaballa.
“When (Father) Franҫois tried to oppose resistance to defend the nuns and other people, the guerrillas shot him, killing him,” according the Vatican Radio report.
Most of the Gassanieh's Christian population has fled, Pizzaballa told Vatican Radio, after weeks of assaults by Syrian rebels.
“Mourad was just one of the many men and women religious putting their faith on the front line in Syria, refusing to abandon the communities they serve, Christian and Muslim," Vatican Radio said.
"They stay because they want to be a sign of hope, light and comfort to people in the midst of destruction."Most of horrible things to do when people fight for freedom, why should they be killed for what they stand for? FSA should investigate whether this should have done by rebel or criminal Assad gangs? The rebels are not gain for doing this kind of thing! Assad only gain this kind of killing as video clips around online - very calculated to against the rebel!
Update: Most most heartbreaking thing is the peaceful Syrian revolutionary turns into bloodbath sectarian slaughterhouse by criminal Assad, FSA revolutionary right to defend themselves their Syria try to overcome all of horrendous sectarian killings, as he is not a leader but a war criminal in eyes of every law!
