President Ilham Aliyev post on 30th anniversary of Khojaly Genocide

President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has shared a post on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Khojaly Genocide demanding justice.

During the First Karabakh War, Armenia committed an act of genocide against the population of Azerbaijan’s Khojaly town consisting of 7,000 people on Feb. 26, 1992.

As many as 613 people, including 63 children, 106 women, and 70 old people were killed as a result of the massacre. A total of 1,000 civilians became disabled in the onslaught. Eight families were completely annihilated, 130 children lost one parent, while 25 lost both parents. Some 1,275 innocent residents were taken, hostage.

The Khojaly tragedy is just one moment of the aggressive policy pursued by Armenia to seize Azerbaijani lands, which resulted in the occupation of 20 percent of the indigenous Azerbaijani territories by Armenia.
