BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:15 P.M.) – Armenia delivered 94 tons of humanitarian aid to war-torn Syria this week, the Armenian Red Cross reported on Friday.

According to the Armenian Red Cross, at least 30 tons of the humanitarian aid will be distributed to Aleppo via the Leadership of the Armenian Diocese of Beroea.

Aleppo was once the most densely populated city in Syria; it was also home to the largest population of Armenians in the region.

The remaining humanitarian aid will be distributed throughout Syria in order to ease the suffering of the people after more than seven years of war.

Armenia has been a close ally of Syria for many years and continues to be one of the largest donors of humanitarian aid to this war-torn nation.

US President's Security Adviser John Bolton met political scientists Davit Shahnazaryan, Suren Sargsyan, Edik Abrahamyan, Stephan Safaryan and Arthur Ghazinyan in Armenia, Hraparak (Square) newspaper reported.

During the meeting, Bolton focused the attention on the decision of Armenian authorities to send a humanitarian mission to Syria under the flag of Russia. Bolton did not hide the dissatisfaction with that step and noted that Armenia has done a bad thing, but it would be much worse if it later became clear that it was not a humanitarian mission, but a military one.He noted that if  such steps are repeated, Armenia will lose its status as a strategic ally. 

That is, the American side will closely monitor the mission.

Aleppo’s Armenian district Midan coming back to life
15:44, 20.12.2018
                
 

 

Aleppo, one of the most ancient cities located in the north of Syria, became the homeland of a large Armenian community. However, many of Armenians were forced to leave Syria during the war, News Front news agency reported.

Aleppo’s Armenian district Midan is inhabited particularly by residents of Armenian nationality, but this district is not the only Christian quarter of the city. It is the eastern areas adjacent to the historical center that was bearing the brunt of the war.

This quarter was the main target during the shellings as up to several tens of mines or gas cylinders filled with explosives were flying into the homes of people living there and there was the largest number of affected residents. However, the region is coming back to life. Shops, cafes, mini-workshops and factories have already opened their doors. Now residents will walk the streets without fear.

Midan residents are positive and optimistic, they will do their best to recover and rebuild the city. But the most important thing is that the war is over.

Assad to rebuild Armenian Genocide Memorial Church in Deir Ezzor

Armenian-Genocide-Memorial-Church-688x51
 

BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – The Chairman of the Syrian-Armenian Community in Armenia, George Barseghyan, was interviewed by ArmenPress this week after he and a group of Armenian businessmen met with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in Damascus.

“There was a task that this Board must boost Syria-Armenia ties. The first step was asking for a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. And this request was approved very soon. A meeting was scheduled not only with the Syrian President, but also other high-ranking officials of Syria. The Board has formed a delegation consisting of Syrian-Armenians, Armenian businessmen”, Barseghyan said.           

Barseghyan told the online publication that Assad vowed to rebuild the Armenian Genocide Memorial Church in Deir Ezzor that was destroyed by Jabhat Al-Nusra terrorists.

“The Syrian government plans to give priority in these programs to those countries which stood together with it during those years. Armenia is among those countries which didn’t close its embassy during the war, always kept the state ties and sent an aid to Syria. And during the upcoming progress, business programs and restoration works the priority will be given to Armenians”, George Barseghyan said, adding that the Syrian government highly values the role of the Armenian community. He said it’s not a coincidence that the Syrian President promised to restore the Armenian Church in Deir ez-Zor with his own resources.

Syria’s historical relationship with Armenia has paved the way for strong political ties between Damascus and Yerevan.

“Our visit pursued several goals. Firstly to strengthen and intensify the Armenia-Syria ties. In addition, we also wanted to express our support to the Syrian President and government. Armenia is one of those unique countries most of the population of which supports the current Syrian government, because we have managed to reach significant success during that leadership’s government. It was a proper occasion to show our support. Eventually, we have an Armenian community in Syria, in Aleppo, Damascus and etc. The local Armenians have very good relations with the authorities, and we also must think about this”, he added.

Turkish news site indicted for citing Armenian Genocide in Afrin report
264202.jpg
January 12, 2019 - 11:48 AMT

PanARMENIAN.Net - A Turkish prosecutor has prepared an indictment against Necla Demir, the publisher of the Turkish news site Gazete Karınca, over three reports one of which attributed the motivation behind Turkey's attacks on Afrin, Syria to “the 1915 mindset,” referring to the year of the Armenian Genocide, Ahval reports.

The prosecutor said the site was "making propaganda of an illegal organisation" during Turkey's military operation in northern Syrian enclave of Afrin.

A court in Istanbul has accepted the indictment, which says Gazete Karınca has been "making continuous propaganda for a terrorist organisation," the accused news site reported on Friday.

The charges against Demir and Gazete Karınca are principally based on the news site's reports and interviews published in the period when the Turkish Armed Forces declared a cross-border operation in Afrin, a north-west Syrian enclave formerly controlled by Syrian Kurdish groups, on Jan. 20, 2018.

The indictment cited three news reports published on the news site titled as evidence of a crime. One of the news items reported that hospitals in Afrin had gone over capacity during the Turkish military operation, another dealt with the day attacks by Turkish forces reached the town centre. A third attributed the motivation behind the attacks to “the 1915 mindset,” referring to the year of the Armenian genocide, when Ottoman forces drove the empire’s Armenian minority out of the country, killing over a million in the process.

"The news site published reports praising an armed terrorist organisation's actions containing violence, force and threats," the indictment said of the news pieces.

Besides its Afrin reports, several news items by Gazete Karınca covering Turkey's air strikes in the Iraqi Kurdistan region also featured in the indictment.

Turkish authorities have interrogated Demir, who has rejected all accusations.

Demir said the reports the news site released were within the scope of freedom of _expression_ and press and the right to information.

The indictment claims Gazete Karınca's reports were "one-sided and accused Turkish Armed Forces of the occupation of Afrin as well as torture and massacre of civilians."

"In this manner, (Gazete Karınca) elaborated to report on behalf of the PKK/KCK (Kurdistan Workers' Party and its political wing), and its Syrian offshoot the PYD/YPG (Democratic Union Party and its military wing)," the indictment said.

Turkey has stepped up a crackdown on dissent since the military entered Syria in January 2018, and has drawn widespread criticism from human rights groups and statements of concern from the European Union and the United States.

The country has a large Kurdish minority, many of whom see the operation in Afrin as an attack on the movement for Kurdish self-determination and democratic representation in the wider region, including southeastern Turkey. Hundreds of people who protested against the Afrin offensive were detained.
