By the initiative of Azerbaijanis living in Israel, the victims of the terrorist acts committed by the occupant Armenian Army in Ganja and Barda cities, as well as in other residential settlements were commemorated at Khojaly-613 garden near Quds (Jerusalem) City, the State Committee on Work with Diaspora told APA.
Along with Azerbaijanis, the representatives of other communities in Israel and local residents also participated in the event. President of “AzIz” Israel-Azerbaijan International Association Lev Spivak brought to the notice of the event participants that 40 days have already passed since the commencement of military operations in Karabakh.
