Great news:

The Custody of the Holy Land announced that the Father Dhiya Azziz has been liberated. The Custody had had no news of the Father Dhiya since Saturday, 4 July, in the late afternoon. Conflicting news had nevertheless led people to believe that he had been taken by jihadists affiliated to Al-Nusra Jabhat, which administers the emirate in the sector. Father Dhiya was allegedly abducted by another group jihadists eager to profit on his release. In the region, there are a plethora of groups that operate with varied interests. He was allegedly treated well during his kidnapping.

Read it all.
