English: The Khojaly Massacre was the killing[1] of hundreds of ethnic Azerbaijani civilians[2] from the town of Khojaly on 25–26 February 1992 during the Nagorno-Karabakh War. According to the Azerbaijani side, as well as Memorial Human Rights Center, Human Rights Watch and other international observers,[3][4] the massacre was committed by the ethnic Armenian armed forces, reportedly with help of the Russian 366th Motor Rifle Regiment, apparently not acting on orders from the command.[5][6] The official death toll provided by Azerbaijani authorities is 613 civilians, including 106 women and 83 children.[7] The event became the largest massacre in the course of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.[8]
