“If Turkey has nothing to do with the blast at the Saint Martyrs Armenian Church in Deir el-Zor, it should come forth with a condemning statement,” The Head of Staff of the President’s Staff Vigen Sargsyan wrote in a Facebook post.
“On September 21 – Armenia’s Independence Day – the ISIS terrorists destroyed the Armenian Saint Martyrs Church in Syria’s Deir el-Zor. Deir el-Zor is the desert, which became the road to death for 1.5 million Armenians that fell victim to the Armenian Genocide planned and perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire in 1915,” he wrote.
“This is yet another proof of the fact that genocide continues until it’s fully recognized and condemned. And if Turkey has nothing to do with the terrorist act against the Armenian Church, it should immediately come forth with a condemning statement,” Vigen Sargsyan wrote.
