AL-HASAKEH (ARMENPRESS)—The body of Syrian-Armenian serviceman, Arsen Petrosyan, was found in Al-Hasakeh, Syria, Armenpress reports after learning about the discovery from a group of Armenians of Syria on Facebook.

According to the source, Arsen Petrosyan was killed in the neighborhood of Zuhur during an attack by Islamic State forces a few weeks ago. A sudden attack by the terrorist group forced Syrian defense forces to retreat. Petrosyan’s body was left behind and retrieved after the liberation of Al-Hasakeh.

Petrosyan had reportedly joined the Syrian National Defense Forces.

According to the UN, the war in Syria has killed over 220,000 people over the last four years, including over 100 Armenians.

    Americans/allies including NATO and Israel encouraged/funded and armed Turkish terrorists to commit crimes against humanity. Turkey allowed these terrorists to get stronger, enter Syria/Iraq and kill/kidnap innocent civilians. Most of these terrorists’ weapons were supplies by US Administration and allies.
    Once again Americans arm the Terrorists by MISTAKE.

    USA is a desperate country and will use anyone to stay afloat. Turkey is using this state of affairs.

    NATO exists only on paper. From the front it is an A4 size paper, however if you look from the side, it is not even 1 millimetres thick.
    Syria has been a SHELTER to millions of ETHNIC minorities for centuries. Why does anyone want to destroy it? Learn from Syria about MULTICULTURALISM. Syria should be congratulated. Even “ISRAELIS” used Syria as a safe-heaven. Look at the way THESE “Wolves in sheepskin” show their appreciation. Look what these “ANIMALS” have done to SYRIA/Aleppo?
    Thank you Mr Obama.
