ARF Bureau Condemns Attacks on Aleppo

YEREVAN—The Armenian Revolutionary Federation Bureau issued an announcement Wednesday condemning the ongoing rocket attacks on the Syrian city of Aleppo and urging international action to end the attacks on the civilian population and the Armenian community in specific.

Below is the translated text of the announcement.

The Armenian Revolutionary Federation Bureau condemns the continuing attack on Armenian neighborhoods in Aleppo during the past several days. There is already no doubt that the target of opposition forces to the Syrian regime has become Armenian neighborhoods.

There is evidence that the growing attacks on Armenian neighborhoods are being encouraged, especially by Turkey.

We call on all governments, especially Western nations, who are supporting the opposition forces to immediately use their leverage to halt the attacks on Armenian neighborhoods. Those governments which do not work to end the operations will be considered accomplices in the anti-Armenian attacks and all other crimes.

We call on the Syrian authorities to initiate immediate measures to secure the physical safety of unarmed Christian minorities.

We also call on the entire Armenian nation to, through all available means, support all efforts by Hai-Tahd committees and offices in an effort to end the anti-Armenian activities.

    It would have been wiser if we had stayed neutral in this conflict. Waving Syrian flags during April 24 protests does not help our cause.

    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 otherwise they would not dare.
    All the atrocities committed by these terrorists are ignored and overlooked by these so called Democratic leaders of US and their allies who now are in cahoots with Al-Qaeda and other terrorist organisations hurting innocent people.
    These acts of crime against humanity committed in Syria are not going to benefit US/Allies. It is going to backfire in their face one day. Turkey has been encouraged by US to steer things up from the beginning. They only follow orders. Turkey is a place where most terrorist go to gain entry to Syria.
    Obama administration that hated terrorists only few years ago is now SILENT. These big heroes who would look for any excuse (Even if they had to invent one) to “punish” terrorists have changed their spots.
    Mr Putin is happy to see this setting. It only proves (Right) what he had said at the beginning – Trying to discourage US to arm the terrorists. Mr Putin has made a lot of dollars from Turkey and the rest out of this muddy situation. The only winner! Turkey has paid its SAFETY money to Putin!
    There are many Armenians live in US (America). May be they know what does all this mean? Why did these Wolves in Sheepskin turn from “world police” into a bunch of “criminal tugs”?
