At dawn of March 21, 2014, the Armenian families of Kessab and surrounding villages in Syria were attacked by Al-Qaida’s affiliated military forces and forced to get refuge in the town of Latakia, with only their necessary belongings. Some of these families are sheltered by parents or friends, while others have found asylum in SourpAsvadzadzinChurch.
