Armenians used terror as an effective tool in their struggle for independence against the Ottoman Empire. It is possible to examine the terrorist activities of Armenians against the Ottoman Empire and later the Republic of Turkiye in three stages. First, the Ottoman Bank raid in Istanbul (August 26, 1896) and an assassination attempt against Sultan Abdülhamit II (July 21, 1905) the second is the Nemesis operations they organized to take revenge on the leaders of the Union and Progress Party, which took the deportation decision in 1915 after the Armistice of Mudros. The third stage is the attacks they launched against Turkish diplomats in different countries of the world in the 1970s.

In this article, the first attack of Armenian terrorist organizations against Turks in Italy is examined. This is the murder of Sait Halim Pasha, (6 December 1921) the grand vizier of the Ottoman Government, who took the deportation decision.
