Israeli lawmakers visit Armenian Genocide memorial

PanARMENIAN.Net - A delegation of Israeli lawmakers headed by vice speaker of Knesset Tali Ploskov visited the Armenian Genocide memorial in Yerevan.

The members of the delegation laid a wreath at the memorial to pay tribute to the memory of the 1.5 million innocent victims of the Genocide, perpetrated at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.

Some three dozen countries, as well as hundreds of local government bodies and international organizations have so far recognized the Armenian Genocide. Israel and Turkey deny to this day.
