Missile explodes next to Armenian Church in Aleppo

A missile fired by terrorist groups exploded next to the Armenian St. Astvatsatsin Chucrh (Church of the Holy Mother of God), destroying one of the nearby houses, the Aleppo-based Armenian Kantsasar newspaper reports.

According to the source, the church and the adjacent Gertasirats High School have not been damaged in the attack, only the windows are broken.

The Church of St. Astvatsatsin is the only Armenian Church in Aleppo that has escaped losses.

Years ago the terrorists set the St Gevorg Church on fire. The Church of Gregory the Illuminator often comes under rocket attack. The Holy Trinity (Zvartnots) Church of the Catholic community and the adjacent college have also suffered as a result of shelling.
