Armenian Orthodox Patriarch visits Forty Martyrs Cathedral in Aleppo

Armenian Orthodox Patriarch Aram I Keshishian visited the Forty Martyrs Cathedral, which is located in the Jedaideh district of old Aleppo, Saturday.

Later that day the patriarch travelled to nearby Al-Midan to visit the Church of St. Kevork.

Aram I was seen praying, singing and examining the damage done to the buildings, which were heavily damaged by the Syrian conflict.

Aleppo is one of the Syrian cities that have been most affected by the war, with many of its historical and holy buildings being severely damaged or destroyed in the fighting between anti-government forces and the Syrian army.

On December 23, 2016, Syrian officials announced that pro-government forces had established full control over Aleppo, including the city's historic citadel.
