ANCA calls on Obama to help ‘struggling people of Aleppo’

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian National Committee of America Chairman Ken Hachikian called upon President Obama to “forcefully intervene on behalf of the defenseless and courageously struggling people of Aleppo.”

“Aleppo is under siege by jihadist armies,” the letter says. “It is being brutalized by heavy and indiscriminate rocket fire destroying homes, churches, schools, medical facilities, and businesses. Age-old Armenian neighborhoods are disappearing at the hands of al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists, America’s avowed enemies, with the active support of Turkey. The people of Aleppo are left without shelter, without food, without water and with no means to defend themselves. They are held hostage between warring sides and are relentlessly targeted for slaughter by extremist forces. The Armenian American community cannot and will not accept U.S. inaction in the face of the brutal destruction of Aleppo.”

The ANCA letter closed with a request that the President convene “an emergency meeting of the broad-based leadership of the Armenian American community, including our civic, charitable, and church leaders, no later than next week to discuss the plan of action needed for the rescue of Aleppo.”
