BATTLES IN SYRIA'S KESSAB CONTINUE

13:08 ? 29.04.14

The heated battles continue in Syria's Armenian populated town of
Kessab and its neighboring regions.

Tert.am's sources report that the government forces have managed to
liberate several key coastal districts though it is still early to
speak about retaking the entire city and ensure the local Armenians'
return.

Aleppo, Syria's former economic capital which has a big Armenian
community, has now resumed the electricity supply after a 12-day
outage.

Tert.am's sources in Aleppo say that the situation was relatively
calm on Monday.

The problem of the food shortage, which caused a major panic
especially in the Easter period, has also been resolved. The city
now has fuel supply, but cars still reportedly line up near gas
filling stations. The city is said to be facing a shortage of liquid
gas balloons.
