Two more Armenian community member servicemen became victims of the continuing clashes between Governmental forces and armed rebels in Syria.
Jalal Melkonian born in 1992 from Hasaka city died while serving in Syrian Army near city of Homs. Another soldier Raffi Ibrahim Kadmus who was born in the city of Tel Abyad was also killed during clashes in Homs. They became the fifth and sixth victims of the violence in the country.
The ongoing conflict in Syria lasting already for fifteen months, has had grave consequences on the local Armenian community.
Besides the human losses, Armenian community has suffered much damage: Homs based Armenian school and church were bombarded by the opposition forces and later served a kind of shelter and rest place for the initiators.

  1. Its better to have your news from Syria from more reliable sources.no Armenian church or school has been a target of opposition forces.while there are opposition young leaders of Armenian origin , like jimmy Kapriel chahinian from raqa (in jail) .barsoum barsoum from aleppo , held from Aleppo university ( in jail) . And we have Aram al Doumany who is the official spokesman of the revolution youth of Douma and Damascus , who everyday is on the international Arabic tv stations.
