/PanARMENIAN.Net/ It’s not for the first time when Istanbul-based Surb Karapet Armenian church superior’s life is attempted. Father Pargev Nalbandian was assaulted in 2002, a source in the Armenian community of Istanbul told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter.

No Armenian newspaper [presently functioning Marmara, Agos], with exception for pro-governmental Zhamanak covered the incident.

On August 4 morning, unknown persons commenced fire in the territory of Surb Karapet Armenian Church in Istanbul.

According to sources in Istanbul, the unknown targeted at the father superior’s house situated in the church yard. Fortunately, there was nobody home at that moment, otherwise the assault could have unpredictable consequences.

The police launched investigation into the act of violence.

Armenian newspapers in Istanbul working against Armenia?

/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Several Turkish journalists are working for Armenian-Turkish Agos newspaper founded by slain editor Hrant Dink.
As a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter came to know from the Armenian community in Istanbul, the number of Turkish journalists has increased while editor-in-chief Etienne Mahchupyan doesn’t know Armenian well.

As to another Istanbul based Zhamanak newspaper, the staff fully supports Armenia’s first president Levon Ter-Petrosyan and never publishes positive articles about Armenia.
“When the RA NA decided to send peacekeepers to Iraq, Zhamanak was the first to trample the Armenian government in the mud. This newspaper used to pretend patriotism in the soviet period. Now, it completely surrendered to the Turkish pressure,” the source said.
Zhamanak was founded in 1908. It’s owned by the family of Kochunyans.
