Baku. Ramil Mammadli – APA. An event dedicated to the 19th anniversary of Aghdaban tragedy was held on Thursday. Chairman of the Ashug Shamshir Cultural Center Gambar Shamshiroglu said Armenian armed forces and Armenian military units in Nagorno Karabakh committed atrocities against the civilians of Aghdaban village of Azerbaijan’s Kelbajar region over the night from April 7th to 8th, 1992. All 130 houses of the village were set on fire during the occupation, 779 peaceful residents were massacred and 67 were killed by tortures. Eight 99-100-year-old men, two babies and 7 women were cremated alive, 12 were grievously harmed and two were missed. Shamshiroglu called Aghdaban tragedy as one of the biggest crimes against humanity. “Aghdaban was occupied on the former Armenian president Levon Ter-Petrosyan’s order and the citizens were massacred. Armenians destroyed and devastated historical-architectural and cultural monuments, as well as shrines and cemeteries. Manuscripts and house museum of Azerbaijani outstanding poet Ashug Gurban and his son Ashug Shamshir were burnt”.

Shamshiroghlu spoke about the indifference of the people led Azerbaijan in that time. MPs Ganira Pashayeva, Fazail Aghamali and others informed the participants of the event about the facts of genocide committed by Armenians against the Azerbaijani Turks in the past hundred years. They condemned the international community for not giving legal and political assessment to the acts of genocide committed against Azerbaijanis.
