On February 25, an event was held at the Educational Complex 132-134 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Khojaly genocide.
The speakers at the event noted that the Khojaly genocide is the most terrible of the genocide crimes committed by Armenia against the peaceful Azerbaijani population during the occupation war against Azerbaijan. On the night of February 25-26, 1992, the Armenian armed forces, violating all norms of international law, sent heavy military equipment to Khojaly and committed terrible crimes against the civilian population. As a result of this horrific crime committed against humanity, 613 peaceful Azerbaijanis were murdered because of their nationality, including 63 children, 106 women, and 70 elderly people.
As a result, 8 families were destroyed, 25 children lost both parents, and 130 children lost one of their parents. Moreover, 487 civilians were seriously injured, 1,275 people were taken hostage. The fate of 150 hostages, including 68 women and 26 children, is unknown.
For the first time, the Khojaly genocide was given a legal and political assessment on the initiative of the national leader Heydar Aliyev. As a result of the successful continuation of this policy, “Justice for Khojaly!” within the framework of the international campaign, the Khojaly tragedy, one of the most terrible crimes of the XX century, was recognized as an act of genocide in the world and the revenge of the victims of the Khojaly genocide was taken on the battlefield by the brave Azerbaijan Army.
It was mentioned that, the 30th anniversary of Khojaly genocide is commemorated as the day of Revenge of Khojaly.
At the event, students of the Educational Complex 132-134 revived scenes dedicated to Khojaly genocide, recited poems and performed literary and artistic compositions in different languages.
