Shared at the interest of total transparency in Urmia history. We can all learn from past. I apologize for graphic nature of photograph

Urmia Turks bury their dead. February 22 1918 there was an attempt by native Moslems(Turks) of Urmia to capture headquarters of Agha Petros head of Assyrian/Christian forces in Urmia. Was inspired partially by German operatives in the area and Iranian demokrats from Tabriz. This attempt failed and participants fled the scene. There was a throng of Assyrian Highlander fighters that pursued these men and killed them. Afterwards some of non-Christian civilians(Moslem and Jews) of Urmia were targeted and killed. About 500 souls lost their lives in this episode
