U.S. ought to sanction Azerbaijan and Turkey for Nagorno-Karabakh offensive

With the world distracted by a world wide pandemic and the United States targeted on the election, a murderous armed forces assault is getting carried out by Azerbaijan and Turkey versus Armenian Christians dwelling in the mountainous Caucasus land usually referred to as Nagorno-Karabakh, but acknowledged by Armenians as the Republic of Artsakh, where Armenian Christians have lived for much more than 2,000 decades.

Azerbaijan, with the enable of Turkey and jihadists from Syria, is engaged in a violent hard work to push the neighborhood Armenian inhabitants from their homeland. Cruelly, civilian structures, hospitals, and Armenian churches are amongst the targets of shelling and drone strikes.

As the grandson of survivors the 1915 Armenian Genocide, when 1.5 million Armenians had been killed by the Ottoman Turks, I along with other individuals in the local community worry yet another genocide threatens if firm and decisive motion is not taken now.

Several Armenian family members have family members immediately impacted who have fled their houses to avoid the bombing and are battling for their life. Sanctions will have to be imposed now from Turkey and Azerbaijan and military support stopped to reduce an additional genocide. Move U.S. Home Resolutions 1165 and 1203 to aid attain these plans. Make sure you be a part of me in asking for help from U.S. Reps. Marcia Fudge and David Joyce on these resolutions.
