YEREVAN. – Before escaping from the Syrian region of Kessab, terrorists destroyed and burnt all Armenian churches and desecrated Armenian cemeteries, a Syrian Armenian said.

Vazgen Mesropyan, chairman of Social-Democrat Hunchakian party, said the Syrian army liberated the entire region of Kessab, while the terrorists fled to the border with Turkey.
“The western media said the border was closed not to allow terrorists penetrate into Turkey, but these reports are false. Turkey opened the border, and terrorists returned the country, while some of them headed to other Syrian provinces,” Mesropyan said during a press conference on Tuesday.
