Turkish policemen have broken the door of Sourp Kevork (St. George) Armenian Church in Mardin, Turkey, Ermenihaber.am reports, quoting Turkish Democrathaber website.

Hatun Jajur, who has voluntarily undertaken to clean the church, had left for a while and found everything turned upside down upon return.

“No only the main entrance, but also all other doors of the church were broken,” Jajur said.

The Church is one of Europe’s seven most endangered monuments. For 15 centuries the Church of St. George was the spiritual home of the large Armenian community in the Turkish city of Mardin. This Grade I registered historical building was founded in 420 AD and was in use until the Armenian genocide of 1915. In spite of its outstanding historical and cultural importance, this monument is currently in an advance state of decay.

I guess the Bird (Furkey) did not need the help of NATO to do this. Bastards.
