"The Syrian opposition again bombarded the Armenian-populated and, in general, the Christian-populated areas, in the early morning hours of [Friday] September 21, and one Armenian was killed as a result of the military operations.
Our compatriots note that the Armenians [still] remaining in Aleppo have no choice but to immediately leave the war-ravaged city.
