PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkish and Azerbaijani nationals took to the streets in Lyon, France and shouted threats against Armenians.

They behaved extremely aggressively, walked in large groups and scared the residents of the city which is home to a large Armenian community.

In a video published my Zartonk Media, the Turks and Azerbaijanis are seen whistling and screaming on Wednesday, October 28 night.

In another video published by the Independent Union of Police Commissioners on Twitter, a massive group of violent people holding Turkish flags are seen marching in Vienna in search of Armenians.

The French police union also published a photo of a police vehicle damaged in the aggression.

A resident of a French town, meanwhile, said that groups of young and aggressive Turks waving Turkish flags poured to the streets on Wednesday afternoon, Nouvelles d'Armenie reports. She said the crowd literally filled the center of the city, shouting 'Death to the Armenians.' Men threatened everyone who dared to look them in the eye, making residents hide in their homes.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
