Elnur Guliyev, the father of little Zahra murdered by Armenian militaries, said that a complaint was submitted to the European Court of Human Rights over the murder of his daughter and mother.
The two-year old Azerbaijani toddler was killed together with her grandmother Sahiba Guliyeva by the Armenian armed forces on July 4 during the shelling of the Alkhanli village of Azerbaijan’s Fuzuli region. Salminaz Guliyeva, 52, who got wounded, was taken to a hospital and was operated on.
“We filed a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights, on the murder of my daughter and my mother by the Armenians,” the grieving father told local media. “All the necessary documents were sent. The whole world must know that my child and my mother were savagely murdered by Armenians for no reason.”
This is not the first time when innocent Azerbaijani children become victims of the criminal regime of Serzh Sargsyan. Armenia constantly resorts to vile military provocations with the aim to kill Azerbaijani citizens living in frontline settlements.
Most recently they targeted the Garalar village of Azerbaijan’s Tovuz region, where they wounded teenager Ramil Yusibov. The boy was in the yard of his house when an Armenian shell fell there. Receiving multiple shrapnel wounds, Ramil was urgently operated in the region hospital.
Since a war in the early 1990s, Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan's territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding regions. More than 20,000 Azerbaijanis were killed and over 1 million were displaced as a result of the large-scale hostilities.
For more than two decades the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict fails to be resolved due to Armenia’s unconstructive position and unwillingness to engage in negotiations with Azerbaijan.
However, the international community remains blind to these terrible crimes, as Armenia still remains unpunished for them.
