PanARMENIAN.Net - The National Center for Armenian Memory in France and the Armenian Genocide memorial in Decines, Lyon have been vandalized, according to the High Commissioner for Diaspora.

'The Turks vandalized the Armenian Genocide Memorial in Lyon,' the Commissioner's office captioned a photo of the two memorials on Facebook.

The inscription 'Loup Gris' (Grey Wolves) has been sprayed on the building of the National Center for Armenian Memory.

Hate speech against Armenians has surged amid the ongoing hostilities in Karabakh, with Turks and Azerbaijanis declaring what they call 'a hunt of Armenians' and threatening them. For example, a group of Turks in France attacked Armenians rallying to protest Azerbaijan's aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh, and hit two of the rally-goers with hammers on October 28.
