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 deputy director general of the 'Support for youth development – Dushunce' public association, said.
He expressed gratitude to the AZAL management for support in the project implementation.
Khojaly, the second largest town in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan, came under intense fire from the towns of Khankendi and Askeran already occupied by the Armenian armed forces in 1992.
613 civilians mostly women and children were killed in the massacre, and a total of 1,000 people were disabled. Eight families were exterminated, 25 children lost both parents, and 130 children lost one parent. Moreover, 1,275 innocent people were taken hostage, and the fate of 150 of them remains unknown.
