YEREVAN, DECEMBER 25, ARMENPRESS. Shahe Chaghlasyan, who was
kidnapped in Aleppo few days ago, has been released. Press Secretary
of the Armenian National Prelacy in Aleppo Jirair Reisian informed
“Armenpress” about this. In addition he stated that he has been
released after the payment of ransom. Chaghlasyan has been kidnapped
in Shkeyf district of Aleppo in his own car.

Among other things Reisian stated that an Armenian doctor, who also was
kidnapped in Aleppo, has already been released after paying ransom to
the kidnappers. The two Armenians have already returned back to home.

According to the Press Secretary the death of Hovak Kortmosyan has been
finally approved. He was among the servicemen, who were assassinated
in Aleppo in summer, 2012. Kortmosyan was deadly wounded during the
attack of the Hananu armory. His friends told that they had seen him
fallen, although his parents cherished a hope to see their son alive,
as they had not found his corpse. Lately it turned out that the corpse
of the Armenian youth became unrecognizable after leaving in the sun
for a long time.

As to the current situation in Aleppo Reisian stated that nothing
essential changed in the city. The electricity is being interrupted
from time to time. Notwithstanding the Government spares no effort
to restore it, the rebels keep disturbing the natural course of
restoration. The situation in the central districts is calm, but one
can still hear shooting from distant regions.
