Commemoration of the 29th anniversary of Khojaly Massacre
February 26, 2021 marks the 29th anniversary of the heinous war crime against humanity perpetrated by the Armenian armed forces in the occupied Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. On February 25-26, 1992, Armenian armed forces, and several Armenian paramilitary detachments, with the support of the 366th motorized rifle regiment of the Russian army, stormed the besieged town of Khojaly and cleansed it from its Azerbaijani population. By the morning hours of February 26, 613 bodies of Azerbajiani and Ahiska Turks lay lifeless, bullet-ridden, mutilated; among them 106 women, 83 children, 79 elderly. Many more went missing and fell into captivity, never to be heard from again. 

Massacre at Khojaly was the culmination point in a series of February ethnic cleansing assaults, perpetrated by Armenian forces. On February 10-11 and February 17, Armenian detachments seized the villages of Malibeyli and Gushchular, and Garadaghly, respectively, burning the the villages to the ground and massacring hundreds of civilians and forcing more into captivity. All these villages and Khojaly itself were part of the scorched earth policy, devised by the Armenian commanders intending to remove all the hope fleeing Azerbaijani may have for returning to their homes.

As we approach the 29th anniversary of Khojaly Massacre, we must inform the international community about atrocities committed by Armenian forces and demand justice for the victims of this heinous war crime. Please join the U.S. Azeris Network and Azerbaijani community worldwide in commemorating the fallen victims of Khojaly Massacre by sending the following letter to your elected officials and by clicking on the link below, and asking them to adopt a resolution, issue proclamation or make an official statement on record on the 29th anniversary of the massacre. We will never forget!
