Peaceful Armenian Demonstration In France Attacked By Knife, Hammer-Wielding Turkish Nationals

Armenpress- Armenians in France blocked the A7 highway leading to Valence demanding Paris to take action against the ongoing Turkish-Azeri attacks on Artsakh.

“We are losing our 18-20 year old children at the border,” said one of the demonstrators. “And we will do anything for our voices to be heard, we will even block airports if that’s what’s needed.”

The demonstrators were chanting “We will win”, “Aliyev dictator”, “Erdogan and Aliyev are terrorists,” “Recognition”.

During the demonstration, three men armed with knives and hammers attacked the peaceful Armenian protest. One of the protesters lost consciousness after being hit in the head. A scuffle began between the demonstrators and the assailants, who are said to be Turkish nationals.

According to preliminary information, about 10 Armenians were injured, including a woman and a child. The condition of the young man who was hit by a hammer is assessed as severe.
