Rep. Adam Schiff has condemned the “act of hate” against Armenian schools in LA.
The private Armenian schools in Southern California vandalized today with Turkish flags “are attended by many descendants of survivors of the Armenian Genocide perpetrated by the Ottoman Empire,” Rep. Schiff said.
“I stand with the Armenian community in condemning this act of hate,” the Congressman added.
He voiced hope that the authorities investigating the incident would identify the suspects to prevent additional threats and intimidation.
The Holy Martyrs Ferrahian High School and the AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School, in Encino and Canoga Park respectively, were vandalized overnight, in what police are calling a hate incident and a hate crime, after school officials reported Turkish flags hanging on campus.
