American Armenian pop star Cher ( Cherilyn Sarkisian ) has taken to Twitter to condemn Turkey’s assault against Syria.
“Sorry to keep harping about Kurds, but I’ve heard about “blood thirsty Turks who tortured and murdered almost 2 million Armenians since I was 11. Also heard it in Armenia. Turk soldiers are still blood thirsty. Now they will commit genocide on the Kurds with Trump’s blessing”, Cher said on Twitter.
Turkey launched air strikes, fired artillery and began a ground offensive against Kurdish fighters in northern Syria on Wednesday (Oct 9) after US troops pulled back from the area.
Armenian-populated cities were also targeted by Turkish troops. Most Armenians have been evacuated from the areas.
