Fighting has once again intensified in Aleppo in recent days after the fragile ceasefire that had held for the past few weeks has apparently fallen apart. This renewed violence in Syria comes at a time when the heroic people of Artsakh are standing strong and tall against the cowardly attacks by Azerbaijan.

Sources from inside Aleppo have reported indiscriminate shelling of civilian neighborhoods throughout most of the city, with over 30 civilians killed in the past 24-48 hours and another 60 people killed over the weekend in Aleppo, according to Reuters. Among the victims are Syrian-Armenians. “The shells are everywhere, there are dead people on the ground, and they’re washing the blood from the streets,” said one resident, quoted by the Guardian.

We wish to remind all those who have supported SARF’s efforts throughout the past four years, and lately during the SARF Telethon, that we should all remain vigilant and continue our coordinated effort in raising the needed funds to support those who are enduring the daily hardships of a brutal and bloody war.

Although geographically apart, our people in Aleppo and in Artsakh know well that the entire Armenian nation stands by their side in their struggles for as long as it takes.

We wish to thank our donors for their continued support and call on all those who wish to contribute towards this cause, to donate by mailing a check to SARF: P.O. Box 1948, Glendale, CA 91209 or by donating online at
