    Please clarify if specifically targeted or happen to be in an area that was being bombed? Did the bomb drop from the air or was it a surface missile?

    We need to know the facts before resorting to accusations, otherwise, it’s easy to fall into the trap by making knee jerk reactions and creating further animosity towards us.

    Another Turkish ISIS created and Turkish supported attack on Armenians. And our god damn foreign minister Edward Nalbandian and god damn Serz Sarkissian wish to sign the ill fated, western blessed, Turkish-Armenian Protocals!
    On our Genocide Centenial the Turkish government wishes to distract us from our legetimate demands from Turkey and the world community but she can not succed in her ill wishes. The entire world knows that Turkey is Genocidal, blood thirsty and barbarian.
    As longest the West is in support of these Turkish barbarians, the Turkish government will do as she wishes; however us Armenians will not deter from our just demands. We are united more than ever and we will overcome this savage attack on our churches.
    Long live Armenia. Long live free and independent Artsakh and long live the Armenian people. We are our Mountains and we are strong. Dzer tsave tamem im Hay zhoghovurd.
