PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian cemetery in the village of Akhori, situated near the city of Igdir on the slopes of Mount Ararat, has been demolished at the hands of Turkish treasure hunters.

Left untended, the cemetery has been looted, with the bones of those buried scattered in the area, Tert.am reported citing Turkish Dicle news agency.

“The residents of the mostly Kurdish-populated village urge the government to address the issue and promote preservation of the history of the area,” Dicle said.

The village of Akhori was almost completely demolished in the 19th century earthquake, with only the cemetery left untouched. Historic data reveals that before the quake and the landslide that destroyed the village, the latter was home to a 7th century St. Hakob Church. Later, a new settlement renamed into Yeni Dogan was formed in the area.

I hate this type of thing, Orkish Ghouls unearthing our dead. Like snails crawling on salad.

An Armenian cemetery in Turkey’s Sinjar province has become the target of treasure hunters who have ravaged graves to dig out skeletons.

Murad Mihci, an Armenian lawmaker from the People’s Democratic Party, has voiced concerns over the vandalism on Facebook, publishing photos taken by the thieves.

The cemetery belongs to the Holy Savior foundation.
