Cher draws parallels between the Armenian Genocide and Turkish  military aggression in Syria

ArmInfo. The world famous  American singer of Armenian descent Cher drew parallels between the  Armenian Genocide and Turkish military aggression in Syria.

Cher in her Twitter, noted that she has heard about "blood thirsty  Turks who tortured and murdered almost 2 million Armenians since I  was 11". < Turk soldiers are still blood thirsty. Now they will  commit genocide on the Kurds with Trump's blessing>, she emphasized.

On October 9, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the  start of the military operation "Source of Peace" in northeastern  Syria against the Workers' Party of Kurdistan and the Islamic State.  As part of it, Turkish bombers attacked the positions of the Kurds in  the city of Tell Abyad, where 16 

Armenian families reside permanently. The city of Camishli with a  large number of Armenian residents was also hit by the military.  Turkey justified this operation by ousting troops of Kurdish militias  from the northern regions of Syria and creating a "security zone"  there.

For his part, US President Donald Trump called Turkey's operation  against the Syrian Kurds "a bad idea."
