The Armenian young man who was injured during French Armenians’ demonstration is in serious condition. One of the protesters said this, adding that now they were reopening the road and going to the hospital to see him.
Earlier, Armenian News-NEWS.am reported that a provocation by the Turks took place during Wednesday morning’s rally organized by Armenians in France, during which they had blocked the highway leading to Valence and demanded that the French authorities rein in Turkey and Azerbaijan, as well as recognize the independence of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).
During this demonstration, however, several Turks had approached these Armenians from behind, made some statements, and then hit two Armenian demonstrators with a hammer. After that, the Armenians had retaliated.
For a long time, one of the injured Armenian demonstrators was lying on the asphalt and was unable to move.
The number of Turks also increased.
But to avoid a possible clash, the police did not allow the Turks and the Armenians to approach each other.
Eventually, the Armenian protesters decided to reopen the highway, and they went to the hospital to see their injured friend.
