Genocide at Hocaeli. How About the Armenians Soldiers Wiping Out Azeri Civilans at Hocaeli?
Submitted by Ceyla Teoman (United States), Sep 5, 2007 at 16:10
This was just 15 years ago. How can you not remember when the Armenian army circled the Azeri Hocaeli village and killed most of the inhabitants; over a 1,000 of them including babies, children, women, elderly. Civilians were murdered and burned. Some were burned alive. You need to have a strong stomach to read how some people were murdered. In this case, it happens that Muslims were murdered by the Christians just like in Bosnia. You can not be selective with your memory.
