Ottoman Troops Rescuing Hadjin from Siege 1909

The Rescuers of the 1909 Siege of Hadjin

From a Harold Keshishian letter:

It took me years to figure out what hundreds of soldiers were doing in Hadjin. The city was surrounded by thousands of local Turks and Kurds and lots of Rumeli and Chechen Transplants. They were part of the 1909 mob killing the Armenians in Adana.

The Troops were sent originally to help the mob but at the last minute they were sent as rescuers. Close inspection shows hundreds of Soldiers with arms.
