Armenia condemns

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Armenian Foreign Ministry on Friday, July 22 condemned the Zakho resort attack, which killed at least nine civilians, including two children.

"Our deepest condolences to friendly Iraq and Iraqi people on the tragic death of civilians as a result of shelling in Zakho district," the Armenian Foreign Ministry said.

"We strongly condemn violent act against civilian population and wish a speedy recovery to those injured."

According to a report from The Guardian, the Iraqi government has accused Turkish forces of an attack on its citizens in a resort near the Kurdish city of Zakho, in the country’s far north. Turkey denied it had launched strikes against civilians and instead claimed that its arch-foe, the Kurdistan Workers’ party (PKK), was responsible.
