The Khojaly genocide was discussed at the “Karabakh” Azerbaijani language school in Ottawa

The next lesson of the Karabakh Azerbaijani language school in Ottawa, Canada was dedicated to "We have not forgotten Khojaly!".
The lesson, which began with the national anthem of Azerbaijan, commemorated the victims of the Khojaly genocide with a minute of silence. The founder and head of the school, Vusala Ahmadova, briefed the students on the Khojaly genocide and said that the Armenian armed forces, with the help of the 366th Motorized Regiment, had committed inhumane crimes against peaceful Azerbaijanis, as well as children and infants. She noted that as a result of the Khojaly genocide, 613 Khojaly residents, including 63 children, 106 women and 70 elderly people were killed. 8 families were completely destroyed, 25 children lost both parents, 130 children lost one parent. 487 people, 76 of them children, were injured. 1275 people were taken prisoner, the fate of 150 of them is still unknown.
Then the students recited the poem "Jan Khojaly" dedicated to the Khojaly genocide and demonstrated their paintings.
It should be noted that our native language is taught to children of Azerbaijani families living in the city and surrounding areas at the "Karabakh" Azerbaijani language school in Ottawa, Canada.
