    Turkey, Israel, The CIA and other powers are behind the acts of terror and aggression committed against the Syrian people and Army by the so called Rebels who are nothing but a minority of traitors who sold their souls for money and by mercenaries from other countries. The so called rebels are criminals and terrorists they are targeting Armenians, Christians, Alawites, Army and Police in an effort to turn it into a chaotic sectarian place.
    Syria is a secular country where minorities thrived, enjoyed rights and freedoms and did their duties like any other Syrian.
    The Syrian government must take the strongest measures to eliminate all terrorists on it’s land without consideration to any pressure from UN or any foreign powers, this is a duty to apply the rule of law and order.
    Syria is a sovereign country and must protect it’s sovereignty and the people from any aggressor.
    The US, Israel, Turkey and others must stop their acts of aggression,bullying and dominance against Syria. Turkey kills hundreds of Kurds every day and oppresses minorities, Israel kills Palestinians and confiscates their lands everyday, even Armenians are mistreated by the Israelis. How come Mrs. Clinton and the US do not mention the violation of basic human rights in Turkey and Israel, or maybe friends are exempt?

    a handful of armenians died since syrian conflict begin, except for 1, all killed were in the army, and army conscripts (in syria you must go there is not choice), so when asbarez reports on this they should make that clear who they are dying for, since asbarez or no other armenian media put even one article about the other 17,000 syrians that were killed or the multiple massacres
