Syriac Unity Party condemns the murder of Armenian priest

The party defined the attacks as an attempt to revive the ISIS.

The priest of the Armenian Catholic Church in Qamishlo, Hovsep Petoyan and his father Abraham Petoyan were targeted by an armed attack while travelling on the road between Hesekê and Deir ez-Zor in north-eastern Syria on Monday. Both the priest and his father lost their life in the attack.

On the other hand, Qamishlo was shaken by twin car bomb attacks which killed six people and wounded 42 others in the city center yesterday.

Syriac Unity Party strongly condemned Monday’s car bomb attacks and the murder of Armenian priest, offering condolences to the families of martyrs.

Defining the attacks as an attempt to revive the ISIS and as connected with Turkey, the party called on international community to finally take a tough stance against the attacks, saying that this was a must for the restoration of the region’s peace and security that have been destroyed by the recent attacks.
