ALEPPO (Kantsasar)—A number of Aleppo districts came under shelling over the weekend, killing two Armenians, reports Kantsasar newspaper.

The victims were identified as Karo Mkrtichyan and Edward Petrosyan, who were killed when the Qasser al-Baladi municipality building came under fire on Friday, June 20. 9 civilians were killed in total, and several dozens injured.

Last week Asbarez reported the injury of one Armenian as a result of another shelling attack in Aleppo. Fernant Nikoghosyan was reportedly injured during the most lethal rebel bombardment the city has seen since the conflict in Syria began four years ago, according to one monitoring group speaking to Reuters.

    Again Turkey behind this destruction. And who is supplying weapons to Turkey?

    Americans/allies including NATO and Israel encouraged/funded and armed terrorists to commit crimes against humanity. These hyenas are still sheltered in Turkey and the whole world is turning a blind eye to their existence.
    Americans are too busy killing their BLACK kids and then play acting to cover-up their mess. However, they will have to take responsibility for the chaos they have created in Syria, Iraq, etc…
    Thanks to Mr Obama and his US administration and allies these flesh-eating animals are armed with deadly missiles and weapons. Turkey is only following suit and is very much involved.
    All the atrocities committed by these terrorists are ignored and overlooked by the leaders of US and their allies who now are in cahoots with Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organisations hurting innocent people.
    Thank you Mr Obama.
