The Syrian branches of PKK terrorists, known as YPG/PYD, have created an armed grouping of Armenians living in such countries as Syria and Lebanon to fight against Turkey, Report informs citing sonhaberler.com.
They said they are the descendants of Armenians 'expelled' from the Ottoman Empire in 1915. The armed grouping announced the start of its operation from April 24. The grouping was given the name of Nubar Ozanyan (Orhan Bakirchiyan), a member of the Turkish Communist Party/Marxist-Leninist terrorist group, who was killed in Syria.
One of the leaders of the terrorist grouping, Masis Otayyaf said Armenians were summoned in Syria's Kamishli, Haseke, Serekaniye, Dirbesiye and Amude and every day they take part in military and ideological training. They have the photo of ASALA terrorist Levon Ekmechiyan, who committed the terror attack in Turkey's Eseboga which killed 9 and injured 72 people in 1982 hanging on the wall in their headquarters.
It is noted that PKK terrorists supported Armenians in keeping Azerbaijan's Nagorno-Karabakh under occupation and helped the occupants in the battles. The terrorists who were sent to Armenia to fight against Azerbaijan, were selected from among those trained as bombers and saboteurs. The group of Armenians, instructed by PKK, is called 'Ağrı Eagles'. They are headed by three terrorists - Livan Karadağ, Hemaran Kerveçiyan and Servet Bagopşin. In the future this armed grouping of Armenians is expected to be renamed into 'Internasional tabor'.
Notably, on April 24, Armenians will hold a ceremony under the motto 'We remember those we lost on April 24' at the Shishli cemetery and in other places.
