The Azerbaijani diaspora in the Netherlands held a rally near the Netherlands Parliament in The Hague. Protesters strongly condemned the acts of vandalism committed by the Armenian armed forces in Ganja and other settlements of the country, the death of civilians, including children and women, and the destruction of civilian facilities.
Members of diaspora organizations and our compatriots took part in the rally initiated by the Azerbaijani community in the Netherlands. It was noted that the heavy artillery shelling of the Azerbaijani cities such as Ganja and Mingachevir, Tartar, Goranboy, Barda, Yevlakh, Agdam and other regions is a continuation of Armenia's aggressive policy against Azerbaijan. The protesters called on the international community to hear the true voice of Azerbaijan and not to remain indifferent to acts of vandalism.
The National Anthem of the Republic of Azerbaijan was performed and slogans such as “Karabakh is Azerbaijan!”, “Pray for Ganja!”, “Stop Armenian terrorism!”, “Stop child death!”, “We say no to terrorism”, “Do not support the occupying state!”, “Armenia, comply with UN resolutions!” in different laguages were chanted.
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 both 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.
