The Libyan interim government officially adopted in March a resolution recognizing the Armenian Genocide, addresslibya.com reported.
According to the country's Foreign Ministry , the interim government announced on Thursday that the country will commemorate the Armenian Genocide, committed by the Imperial Government of Turkey’s Ottoman Empire.
Addresslibya.com noted that in 24 April 1915, Ottoman authorities rounded up, arrested, and deported from Constantinople (now Istanbul) to the region of Ankara, 235 to 270 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders, the majority of whom were eventually murdered. This was followed by the deportation of women, children, the elderly, and the infirm on death marches leading to the Syrian Desert. Driven forward by military escorts, the deportees were deprived of food and water and subjected to periodic robbery, rape, and massacre. The final death toll of the genocide is reported to be 1.5 million.
