    An event dedicated to the 32nd anniversary of the Khojaly genocide was held at the Grand National Assembly of Türkiye on February 26.

    The commemorative ceremony, held in the conference hall of the parliament's PR department, was conducted at the initiative of the Turkish-Azerbaijani Friendship, Cooperation and Solidarity Foundation (TADIV), Report informs.

    Head of the Türkiye-Azerbaijan interparliamentary friendship group Samil Ayrim, Azerbaijani ambassador to Türkiye Rashad Mammadov, Turkish MPs, president of the Türkiye-Azerbaijan Friendship, Cooperation and Solidarity Foundation Professor Aygun Attar and public figures attended the event.

    The event participants emphasised that the organisers and perpetrators of the Khojaly genocide must appear before the International Court.

    Today, February 26, is the 32nd anniversary of the Khojaly genocide and the occupation of the town of Khojaly by Armenian armed formations with the participation of the 366th Motorized Rifle Regiment of the former USSR.

    The Khojaly genocide is the gravest crime of genocide committed against peaceful Azerbaijani people in the course of Armenia’s aggressive war against Azerbaijan. On the night of February 25-26, 1992, in violation of all international legal norms, Armenian armed forces attacked the civilian population of the sieged town of Khojaly with heavy military equipment, killing them with unprecedented brutality and razing the town to the ground.

    As a result of crime against not only the people of Azerbaijan but against humanity, 613 civilian Azerbaijanis, including 63 children, 106 women and 70 elders were brutally murdered on grounds of national identity. The Khojaly genocide is one of a series of acts of mass slaughter aiming to crush those who rose up for the defence of their lands from Armenian armed forces’ aggression, to break their will to fight and annihilate the Azerbaijani population of then-time Nagorno-Karabakh.
