Information was disseminated in Turkey to the fact that yet another historical Armenian church is used as a barn in this country.

This time such case has become apparent in Germus village of Urfa Province.    

Even though the said church in the village is registered in the historical heritage list of the Culture and Tourism Ministry of Turkey and it has an information board in three languages, it is used as a barn by the locals, reports of Turkey. 

The website also notes that Germus village, where Armenians once lived, is constantly exposed to attacks by treasure hunters.   

The treasure hunters dig holes in the village, and in the hopes of finding the “treasures” which the Armenians had hid.
