Father Behnam Benoka who works at a refugee camp for fleeing Christians in Iraq had sent a letter to the pope in which he thanked him for denouncing the violence committed by the Islamic State militants and expressed his fear for the fate of Iraq’s Christians who have been cruelly targeted by the extremist group.

Pope Francis while talking to him during a phone call, reportedly said, “Know that I am with you in prayer always. I never forget you.”
