The Union of Artsakh War Veterans calls on the Armenian Diaspora to start mass demonstrations to support the Armenians of Kessab. In particular, the veterans expressed their concern over the Turkish aggression against Armenians and call on the international community to condemn the situation in Kessab. "All measures should be taken to evacuate the citizens and keep their property in Kessab", the statement says.
The Armenian-populated town of Kessab has been attacked by Turks since March 21. Nearly 700 Armenian families have been evacuated to Lattakia. Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan and Armenian political parties have already made statements drawing the international community's attention to the actions of Turkey. An Armenian parliamentary delegation left for Syria and met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
