ALEPPO ARMENIAN COMMUNITY TARGETED ONCE AGAIN
SARF CALLS ON COMMUNITY TO MOBILIZE IN SUPPORT OF CRISIS VICTIMS
Just as Armenians around the world were wrapping up their Genocide Centennial Commemorations, our community in Aleppo was once again the victim of a brutal attack on one of its most iconic churches – the 15th century Armenian Church of Forty Martyrs.
Was the timing of this barbaric act just a coincidence or a message on behalf of the same genocidal criminals who continue to target our heritage, faith and identity?
As you all know, the war in Aleppo has entered a new and very dangerous phase. Our neighborhoods are now in direct line of fire and are being targeted on a daily basis. Our population is facing imminent danger and is suffering human as well as property damages. Our churches continue to be under attack.
Although we become furious with every new tragedy that befalls on our brethren in Syria, we are reminded that we are a nation that has risen from the ashes of a Genocide. The calamity facing the victims of today’s war in Aleppo and all other cities and towns in Syria can only strengthen our resolve and commitment to help them navigate this sad chapter in their lives whether inside Syria or as refugees around the world, most notably in Armenia.
Today, more than ever, the fate of all those living inside Aleppo is unknown. What will be our response!
We call upon our community members to once again step up to the occasion and heed to our urgent call to action by donating generously to help our sisters and brothers who today, more than ever, need our immediate response.
