The western portion of Historical #Armenia , known as Western Armenia had come under #Ottoman Empire by the Peace of Amasya (1555) and was permanently divided from Eastern #Armenia by the Treaty of Zuhab (1639).

B/W 1894-1896, in response to the large scale protests by Armenians, Turkish military officials, soldiers & ordinary men sacked Armenian villages and cities and massacred their citizens.

Hundreds of thousands of people were murdered.

In 1914, Turks entered in #WorldWar1 on the side of #Germany and Austro-Hungarian Empire.

At the same time the #Ottoman religious authorities declared #Jihad ( holy war ) against #Christians except their allies.

As the war intensified, Armenians organized voluntary battalions to help the Russian Army fight against the Turks in the #Causasus region.

These events and general #Turkish suspicion of the Armenian people, led by the Turkish govt. to push the removal of the Armenian from the war zone along the Eastern front.

On 15 April 1915 onwards, Turkish forces burned the villages of #Armenian people and killed more than 24000 people brutally.

On the night of 23-24 April 1915, known as #RedSunday, the #Ottoman govt. rounded up and imprisoned an estimated 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders in the Ottoman capital, Constantinople.

And there after killed all of them.

After that ordinary Armenian were turned out of their homes and sent on #DeathMarches through the #Mesopotamian desert.

They are forced to walk under the scorching Sun untill they dropped dead.
People who stopped to rest were shot.

At the same time the young Turks created 'killing Squad' made of murderers.
They drowned people in rivers, threw them off cliffs, crucified them & burned them alive.

In short order, Turkish countryside was littered with Armenian corpses.

Most sources agree that there were about 2 million Armenian in the Ottoman Empire at the time of massacre.
In 1922, when the genocide was over , there were just 388000 Armenians remaining in the Ottoman Empire.
