We Condemn Vehemently
Tekeyan Founders’ Committee , The Tekeyan Trust of London, Tekeyan Cultural Association of Armenia, and the Tekeyan Cultural Association of USA and Canada vehemently condemn the terrorist act of destroying and ruining the Armenian Saint Martyrs Church in Deir Zor, Syria.
The church complex, built to commemorate the 1.5 million Armenian Martyrs of 1915 Genocide, perpetuated by Turkey, served as a church, museum, archive center and exhibition that contained relics and historical documents.
This act should be condemned by all civilized countries, including Turkey.
