Turkish military helicopters violate Armenia’s air space twice

Turkey’s military transport helicopters have penetrated into Armenia’s air space twice in the recent days, Armenia’s civil aviation department told TASS on Saturday.

“On October 6 and 7 transport helicopters of Turkey’ Armed Forces violated the air space of Armenia,” the source said.

“Air traffic controllers of the Armaeronavigation company have got in contact with their Turkish counterparts who referred to bad weather,” he said noting that the country’s air border was breached in the direction of the city of Armavir, some 48 kilometres from the Armenian capital city of Yerevan, and that the helicopters were en route from the Igdir to Kars regions in Turkey’s east, bordering Armenia.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
