Protest action over the recent Armenian provocation against Azerbaijani civilians on July 4 was held in front of the United Nations Headquarters.

"Azerbaijan New York Association", "Azerbaijani American Women Association of New York" and other organizations attended the protest organized by the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the United Nations.

Participants expressed their protests with Zahra's photos shouting slogans - "I am Zahra", "Justice for Zahra", "Condemn Armenian terror", "Armenia is child killer", "Armenia is perpetrator of genocide". During the protest action, booklets were distributed among foreigners.

It should be noted that on July 4 at about 20:40 (GMT+4 hours), the Armenian armed forces again violated ceasefire and, using 82-mm and 120-mm mortars and grenade launchers, shelled Azerbaijani positions and territories where the civilian population lives, namely the Alkhanli village of the country’s Fuzuli district, thereby grossly violating the requirements of international law, the Azerbaijani defense ministry said earlier.

As a result of this provocation, the residents of the village Sakhiba Guliyeva, 50, and Zakhra Guliyeva, 2, were killed. Servinaz Guliyeva, 52, who got wounded, was taken to the hospital and was operated on.
