Bern protests Ganja terror

Azerbaijanis living in Switzerland held a protest rally in “Helvetia Platsa” square in Bern to protest against the aggression of the occupying Armenian army against our country and the next military provocations in Azerbaijan. Protesters strongly condemned the killing of civilians, including children and women, and the destruction of civilian facilities as a result of repeated rocket fire by the Armenian armed forces in Ganja and other settlements.
Our compatriots living and working in Bern took part in the action initiated by the Coordination Council of Azerbaijanis in Switzerland and the Cultural Center of Azerbaijanis in Switzerland.
"Armenia is a terrorist state!", "Azerbaijan demands justice!", "Civilians are inviolable!" "Occupation is a threat to international peace!", "Stop child mortality!" and other slogans were chanted in the rally.
The protesters stressed the shelling of Ganja and Mingachevir, the presence of women and children among the civilians killed in Ganja, and called on the world community not to be blind to the Armenian terror.
It should be noted that, the Armenian army, violating humanitarian ceasefire, fired rockets at Ganja, Azerbaijan's second largest city, outside the frontline zone of Azerbaijan on October 11 and on October 17, 2020. As a result of rocket attacks by the occupying Armenian army, apartment buildings in the central part of Ganja were destroyed, civilian facilities were severely damaged, 23 people were killed, 83 civilians were seriously injured and the city was severely damaged.
