Jerusalem (ArmRadio)—The Armenian community in Jerusalem today protested Israel’s sale of weapons to Azerbaijan, which are being used against Armenians in Nagorno Karabakh region, reports.


Nasser Atta, a producer for ABC News in the Middle East, tweeted some photos and videos from the demonstration (video above), which occurred in front of the Israeli Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem.

“Israel supports Azerbaijan’s state terror,” read one sign being held aloft by a protester.

There was a separate protest by Armenian residents of Israel last week at Jerusalem’s Monument of the Armenian Genocide.
