The state of the Armenian community in Aleppo, Syria, is stable so far
and there is no direct threat to its security. The zone of military
actions is far from the places of residence of Armenians, says Zhirayr
Reisyan, Press Secretary of National Prelacy of Aleppo, told ArmInfo.

He said that representatives of the Armenian community have already
set up operative groups to provide assistance in emergency situations.

Asked about the number of Armenians who want to leave Aleppo,
Reisyan said that the military actions have seriously destabilized
the situation in the city and many hurry to leave it. Nevertheless,
Armenians have no intention to leave Aleppo forever.

"Not all the Armenian families in Aleppo are able to leave and much
less resettle in Armenia. Those who leave the city will sure be back.

We understand that it is very difficult for them to leave their
hard-warned property and start a new life in Armenia from zero. It
is practically impossible," he said.
