Fr. Hovsep Bedoyan, pastor of the Armenian Catholic community of Qamishli, Syria, and his father, Fr. Apraham Bedoyan were killed while passing through the road under terrorists’ control. This is what Syrian-Armenian Member of Parliament Zhirayr Reyisian told Armenian News-NEWS.am, stating that he has been in Damascus for the past two days due to parliamentary hearings and doesn’t know many details.
“The armed terrorists aren’t sparing anyone. So, this shouldn’t be viewed as an attack on the Armenian community of Syria. Many people have been killed by terrorists on the road. Passing through those unsafe roads controlled by terrorists is an adventure,” he said, adding that one can expect anything from extremists.
