No: 58, 26 February 2018, Press Release Regarding The 26th Commemoration Of The Khojaly Massacre
On 26 February 1992, hundreds of Azerbaijani citizens including women and children were massacred and wounded, also more than thousand people were taken hostages by the troops of Republic of Armenia during their attack in Khojaly town in Azerbaijan's Nagorno-Karabakh region. The fate of the missing people is still unknown today. This inhuman aggression against civilians was engraved in the memories of the international community and deeply wounded the common conscience. Today, twenty percent of Azerbaijani territories are still under occupation of Armenia. More than one million Azerbaijanis became displaced from their homes in their motherland, becoming internal refugees.
Turkey commiserates deeply with her Azerbaijani brothers and sisters over this brutal attack and massacre which they suffered 26 years ago and shares their pain. We strongly condemn this massacre and the continuous occupation of the Azerbaijani territories by Armenia.
We wish God’s mercy upon those who lost their lives in this massacre and wish once again our most sincere condolences to our Azerbaijani brothers and sisters.
