Dozens of members of the Azerbaijani diaspora in the United States gathered in front of New York's United Nation Headquarters on Sunday, to condemn the attacks on Azerbaijan's second biggest city, Ganja. Both Armenia and Azerbaijan have been blaming each other for recent shelling.
Protesters could be seen with a gigantic Azerbaijani flag and signs in support of Azerbaijan, including ones reading, «Stop Armenian occupation,» and «Don't you see this? You support child killers.»
«We all gather here today because we want to mourn the memory of all the victims of the attack in Ganja. On October 17th, an Armenian missile attack was launched at Azerbaijani second largest city at Ganja. This is the third missile attack already and as a result of the latest attack, 15 people died including two children and 52 people were injured and we are here to make our voices heard to let the whole world know that we are being the victims and we are being killed,» an Azerbaijani attorney told the crowd.
The rally came after both sides accused each other of violating the second ceasefire, which came into effect on October 27 at 20:00 GMT.
