AZAL to show footage dedicated to Khojaly tragedy during flights

February 25, 2016, Baku – A video footage dedicated to the Khojaly genocide will be shown on the flights of the Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL) on the day of the 24th anniversary of this genocide.

The campaign will be based on a joint project of Trend news agency and the 'Support for youth development – Dushunce' public association.

The video footage will be shown in English language on all aircraft equipped with overhead monitors (located above the passenger seats).

"The aim of the campaign is to provide foreign citizens using AZAL flights with information about the Khojaly genocide," Emil Huseynli, the head of the 'Support for youth development – Dushunce' public association, said.

He expressed gratitude to the AZAL management for support in the project implementation.

On February 25-26, 1992, the Armenian armed forces, together with the 366th infantry regiment of Soviet troops stationed in Khankendi committed an act of genocide against the population of the Azerbaijani town of Khojaly.

As a result of the massacre, some 613 people were killed, including 63 children, 106 women and 70 old people. Eight families were totally exterminated, 130 children lost one parent and 25 children lost both. A total of 487 civilians became disabled as a result of the onslaught. Some 1,275 innocent residents were taken hostage, while the fate of 150 people remains unknown.
