It was the Ottoman governmen'ts systemetic extermination of Armenians. It started from 24 April 1924 when Otoman authority rounded up, started arresting and deporting 235 to 270 Armenian intellecual and community leaders from Constantinople to Ankara and later killed them. The genocide was carried out during and after WW1 and implemented in two phases. It was wholesale killing of able-bodied male population with massacre and subjection of army conscript to forced labour, followed by deportation of women, children, the elderly and the infirm on death Marches leading to Syrian deserts. The Armenian genocide is ackknowledged to have been one of the modern time genocides.

The Armenians were killed by the Young Turks, the Ottoman military, and Kurdish irregulars.
