The Syrian parliament on Thursday recognized the Armenian Genocide committed by the Ottoman Empire between 1915 and 1917.
Historians believe up to 1.5 million Armenians were murdered by Ottoman Turks during World War I.
The move comes amid growing tensions between Syria and Turkey over the latter’s military presence in the war-torn country.
