Catholicos of All Armenians condemns the terrorist acts against Christian communities in Syria

His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, has severely criticized the terrorist attack near the Holy Translators Armenian National School in Damascus, which claimed the lives of several children. His Holiness described this vicious crime against an education establishment “unacceptable” and emphasized that Christian communities are often targeted during the Syria conflict.

The Catholicos offered condolences to the families and friends of the victims, underlining that the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin will maintain its support to the Syrian Armenians.

On November 17 a requiem service will be offered at the Mother Cathedral for the peace of the souls of the victims and for the establishment of peace in Syria.
