03/12/2022 Turkey (International Christian Concern) – A Turkish court recently acquitted three people who danced upon the gate of an Armenian church in July 2021. The three men were filmed dancing on the Armenian church in Istanbul surrounded by a large crowd protesting COVID-19 regulations.
They were released 48 hours later and two were placed on probation. Their actions sparked outrage among the Armenian community and activists who claimed they dishonored Surp Takavor Church and was part of a long string of vandalism at minority Christian sites, including looters at historic buildings.
