Iran and UN talk about Syrian conflict

Italian priest Dall’Oglio: Killed by al-Qaeda-linked jihadists.

Salehi and Lakhdar Brahimi urge a political solution for Syrian conflict. The UN-Arab League (AL) Special Representative for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, and the Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi talked about their stances on the conflict in Syria and the possible solutions for the violence that taking place in the Arab nation.

Both, the UN-Arab League (AL) Special Representative for Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, and the Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Akbar Salehi, have urged a political solution to the conflict and crisis in Syria after their talks on Syria, while a new report seems to confirm that the foreign-backed terrorists have finally killed the kidnapped Italian priest in Syria.

The Italian priest Paolo Dall’Oglio disappeared in Syria in July and it has been clear that a group of al-Qaeda-linked jihadists had kidnapped the Italian priest Paolo Dall’Oglio.

Paolo Dall’Oglio was last seen in the Syrian city of Ar-Raqqah (Arabic: الرقة‎ / Raqqa / Rakka). Ar-Raqqah (Rakka) is a city in the northern central region of Syria located on the north bank of the Euphrates.

According to the report, the group of jihadists behind the kidnapping of the Italian priest Paolo Dall’Oglio have finally killed their hostage.

The Italian priest Paolo Dall’Oglio had lived at the Monastery of Saint Moses the Abyssinian or Deir Mar Musa al-Habashi, situated near the Syrian town of Nabk approximately 80 kilometers in the north of the Syrian capital Damascus, for about three decades until 2012.

The report about the killing of the Italian priest Dall’Oglio by a group of al-Qaeda-affiliated Islamists in Syria also says that the Italian priest has been killed by his al-Qaeda-linked kidnappers – despite the fact that the Italian priest Paolo Dall’Oglio has supported the attempt of an armed overthrow of the Syrian government.
