Archbishop Atallah Hanna: ‘Israel’ is responsible for poisoning me

Amman (QNN)- The Head of the Sebastia Diocese of the Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem Archbishop Atallah Hanna said on Monday held the occupation state responsible for poisoning him last Wednesday.

The Archbishop was taken to hospital after an Israeli gas canister was fired into his church in occupied Jerusalem.

Speaking to Jordanian media while receiving treatment at the Jordan Hospital today, Archbishop Hanna held the Israeli occupation accountable for poisoning him by a chemical substance, which an institution of the Israeli occupation is the only one to have, according to Hanna.

He added that the Israeli occupation may have attempted to assassinate him or keep him sick all his life, indicating that the substance has very serious effects, especially on the nervous system.

“The Christians of Palestine are one family of Jordanians and Palestinians,” he affirmed.

Archbishop Hanna will be receiving treatment in Jordan for the next three days.

He also called on the Muslim and Christian brotherhood to stand firm, considering that the incident targetted the one Palestinian body.

“We celebrate the birth of Christ as one family and our enemies want us to be fragmented”, he said.

Dr. Abdullah Al-Bashir, who oversees the health status of Archbishop Hanna said that Hanna is in stable health condition, indicating that further medical examinations will be done, according to Roya News.
