Armenian Districts In Aleppo ‘Back Under Government Control=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=

Syrian government troops have regained control of the main Armenian-populated districts in Syria's largest city of Aleppo, a senior Armenian government official said late on Tuesday.

A diplomatic source in Yerevan monitoring developments in Syria claimed earlier in the day that Syrian rebels seized those districts late on Monday after weeks of heavy fighting with forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad's regime.

According to Armenia's Diaspora Minister Hranush Hakobian, the government forces recaptured them by Tuesday evening. Hakobian also said that the fighting in Aleppo has inflicted no serious material damage on the Armenian neighborhoods mostly located in the city center.
