Armenians in Aleppo

Armenians in Aleppo exist since 14-th century. They were merchants, goldsmiths, leather, silk and carpet manufacturers. They traded productively with Mediterranean cities, Amsterdam, and Marseille.

Armenians built their own schools, churches, sportive and cultural centers.

They fought side by side with Syrian rebels against French colonialism, and imprisoned with them (registered in island Arwad near Tartous) for example, Sarkis Dkhrouni.
