On the night of February 25, 1992, Armenian separatists seized the Khojali settlement in Nagorno-Karabakh. Russian tanks played an active role in capturing the area.
Within hours, over 600 unarmed Azerbaijani citizens were killed. Among them were 106 women and 83 children. The massacre continued for days, while the Armenian separatists killed their hostages and cut the heads off of Azerbaijani military personnel. A total of 487 people were left disabled and 1,275 people were taken prisoner. The fate of 150 people remains unknown.
A monument to Khojali was erected through the mediation of the Holland-Azerbaijan Turkish Cultural Centre. The key goal of the Azerbaijanis in Europe is to inform the new generation about Armenians' brutality," Iskandarov said.
