According to Syrian NGO estimations:

it is estimated that approx. 150,000 Christian Syrians have left the country.

according official Turkish accounts:

approx. 12,000 Syrians (which declared voluntarily being Christians) have sought refuge in Turkey and are camped in different refugee camps ....

now how many of these Christians were Arab Christians, Assyrian/Suryani Christians or Armenian Christians .... WHO knows????

Mr Reisyan (note: beautiful Turkish-Armenian surname) played just for the Armenian audience and propaganda machine ....

fact is, that the most Syrian-Armenians do not and don't want to go to Armenia .... they prefer other states .... including Turkey .....

I ask myself why is that?

does Mr Reisyan know the answer to that?
