France: Turks attack peaceful Armenian protesters with hammers

PanARMENIAN.Net - A group of Turks in France attacked Armenians rallying to protest Azerbaijan's aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh and hit two of the rally-goers with hammers on Wednesday, October 28.

One of the young Armenian men who sustained an injury to his head is in a serious condition, Aysor.am reports.

"We blocked the road from both sides. There were Turks stuck in traffic who hit our friend in the head with a hammer. There were five of them (the Turks - Ed.)," a protester said.

The police have now arrived at the scene. Protesters have handed them the hammer they managed to snatch from the Turks and are continuing their campaign.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.

Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support humanitarian efforts in Karabakh.
