Turkish historian: Something like Armenian Genocide is occurring in Turkey
29 December, 2015
YEREVAN. – A force that considers the Kurds an internal enemy currently rules in Turkey, stated renowned Turkish historian Ayşe Hür.
Hür commented on the Turkish authorities’ policy conducted in the country’s Kurdish-populated regions, and stressed that PM Ahmet Davutoğlu’s statement—“We will clean up in each home”—is a mafia terminology and contains a hint of genocide, reported the Kurdish DIHA news agency.
“The developments unrolling today [in Turkey] are similar to the 1915 Armenian Genocide,” Ayşe Hür said. “In 1915, the Armenians also were in a political awakening and were making political demands, which ended with the deportation and genocide.”
