Maronite Bishops Fear Ongoing Tension Could Spill Out into Streets

he Council of Maronite Bishops on Wednesday expressed fear that ongoing tension could spill out into the streets and called on everybody to rally behind State institutions.

"The difficult circumstances in the region calls for caution and unifying ranks," said a statement read by father Joseph Bwari at the end of the CMB's monthly meeting.

The Bishops, who met in Bkirki under Patriarch Nasrallah Sfeir, also called on Christians, in particular, to be "one heart and one spirit" for the benefit of the country.
