PanARMENIAN.Net - An Armenian child was injured as a shell hit near
Zvartnots church in the Syrian city of Aleppo Friday, Nov 29.

As PERIO NEWS said in a Facebook post, the kid, Anto Tutunjian, got
the necessary treatment and is already at home. Another shell struck
Sulaimaniya district, causing damages. No casualties were reported.

Before the war, there were 80,000 Armenians living in Syria, most of
them in Aleppo. When hostilities broke out, 10,000 people fled to
Armenia while 5,000 settled in neighboring Lebanon.

120,000 people have been killed in the fighting that has ravaged Syria
for two-and-a-half years, according to the UN.
