Meantime, Pope Francis denounced the “intolerable brutality” being inflicted on Christians and other minorities in Iraq and Syria by the ISIL terrorist group.
“Unfortunately the tragic news just keeps coming from Iraq and Syria,” the pontiff said after his weekly prayer in St Peter’s Square.
“We want to assure all those who find themselves in these situations that we have not forgotten them,” he said. “Rather we are with them and we are praying intently for the rapid end of the intolerable brutality of which they are victims.”
Last week, ISIL terrorists kidnapped 220 Assyrians in the Tal Tamr area of Syria where the Takfiri group has seized control of 10 Christian villages.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The US and its regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside the Arab country.
The violence, fueled by Takfiri groups, has so far claimed the lives of over 210,000 people, latest reports show.
Over 3.8 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis. More than 7.2 million Syrians have also become internally displaced, according to the UN.
The ISIL militants, with members from several western countries, control parts of Syria and Iraq, and have been carrying out horrific acts of violence such as public decapitations and crucifixions against all communities.
