Syrian Armenian: Aleppo tensions keep escalating

PanARMENIAN.Net - The situation in Aleppo keeps deteriorating, a Syrian Armenian said.

“Bomb blasts and shootings are a common occurrence here. Planes bombing Aleppo are seen in the air,” Arsen Ekimian told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, adding that government forces suffer ignominious defeat by rebels.

Aleppo-based Armenian addressed the “Outreach to Syrian Armenians” Facebook page, voicing willingness to move to Armenia in early September.

According to the Facebook page founder Anahit Adamyan, most Aleppo-based Armenians are of the opinion that local Armenians are unhappy for their return.

“I will do the utmost to make Syrian Armenians’ return to homeland possible,” Mr. Ekimian said.
