CWN Editor's Note: “The number of Christian families, of all denominations, in Aleppo before the [Syrian Civil War] stood at around 30,000,” said Father Antoine Tahhan, an Armenian Catholic priest. “Now that figure has fallen to around 10,000 … In order to encourage the families to return to Syria, economic sanctions must be lifted.”
