PanARMENIAN.Net - Missile attacks on Syria’s Aleppo continue, with 2 (Vrezh Chapaghjurian and Seda Basmajian) left dead and 6 injured over the last 2 days, Kantsasar weekly reported.
On June 17, Aleppo hosted a meeting between Armenia’s new Consul General Tigran Gevorgyan and Governor of Aleppo Mohammed Wahid Akkad. They discussed the current situation in Syria, the social-political problems of the province and efforts for its resolution.
In early June, Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) launched a #Save Aleppo campaign calling President Obama to stop anti-Armenian attacks in Syria.
Attacks on the Armenian-populated quarters of Aleppo, Syria, have escalated in recent days, leading local authorities to designate the area a disaster zone.
The campaign aims to urge President Obama to stop the rebel bombing of innocent Christians and all civilians in Aleppo, press Turkey to allow the free flow of Euphrates waters to Syria, answer the ANCA's concerns regarding Turkey's role in the forced depopulation of the historically Armenian populated city of Kessab.
