Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem refutes cemetery desecration report

PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem refuted reports of an Armenian cemetery desecration on December 12 night.

“Latin and Greek cemeteries in the Valley of the Cross region were vandalized, and not the Armenian one,” the cemetery custodian, deacon Zaven Voskanyan was quoted by blagovest-info as saying.

According to earlier media reports, vandals sprayed anti-Christian graffiti on Jerusalem’s Monastery of the Cross and at an Armenian cemetery.
