Serj Tankian condemned the cruel treatment of peaceful Israelis by Hamas, but also reminded that at one time Israel supported Azerbaijan, which carried out the same action against the Armenians living in Artsakh.
"Attacking, kidnapping, killing civilians is a war crime no matter who does the act. What I’ve seen today from Hamas’ incursion into Israel is really horrifying due to that factor: we’ve seen similar indiscriminate killings of Palestinian citizens by the Israeli Army in the past", the musician wrote on his X account.

He also reminded, "Just 2 weeks ago Azerbaijan armed by Israel I should add, did the same to Armenians of Artsakh forcing them to flee their historic homeland of 3000 years.
What we got from the Israeli gov’t at the time were false equivalency asking both sides for restraint. The success of ethnic cleansing by one tyrant encouraged others. I stand with both Palestinians and Israelis who authentically want peace."
