They strike again in France , A Catholic church attacked by terrorists and Killed Priest

On 2nd August  an 85-years-old Father, Jacques Hamel,  laid to rest . He was assassinated by two attackers during a terror strike on July 26, Tuesday. They slit his throat at his church’s altar while injured another during an hour long hostage situation.

Hundreds of people attended the funeral at  Rouen Cathedral . The Funeral service was held under stiffened security at the thirteenth century Gothic cathedral in northern France.

The service was followed by a private burial, while speaking from the service, the priest’s sister Roselyne Hamel, stated the congregation that Father Jacques during his military service in Algeria refused an officer’s rank so that he would not have to give the order to kill any human. She further stated that at one occasion, he emerged the sole survivor in a desert shootout.

She added “He would often ask himself: ‘Why me?’ Today, Jacques, our brother, your brother, you have your answer: Our God of love and mercy chose you to be at the service of others,”.

Father Hamel had his throat slit by two knife wielding attackers during their hostage keeping at the Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray church in Normandy France. The attacker entered in the Church during  morning mass. Witnesses said they pushed Father Hamel on his knees and gashed his throat while chanting in Arabic Allah Hu Akbar.
