Arizona state representative sends letter to Sargsyan over Zahra's death

July 6, 2017 - NEWS.AZ: "Targeting civilians is wrong and should be vehemently condemned."

Member of the House of Representative of the US State of Arizona Donald Shooter has sent an open letter to President of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan over the killing of Sahiba Guliyeva born in 1967 and her 2-year-old granddaughter Zahra Guliyeva as a result of shelling of Azerbaijan's Alkhanli village by Armenians. A copy of the letter has been sent to the Consulate General of Azerbaijan in Los Angeles. 

The letter reads that murdering innocent civilians, let alone children, is absolutely unacceptable in any circumstance, constituting a serious violation of international humanitarian and human rights law. Shooter calls the ongoing military occupation of around 20% of Azerbaijan’s sovereign territory by Armenia, which has led to the total ethnic cleansing of all the occupied areas of around 800,000 Azerbaijani civilians, one of the darkest pages in the modern European history. He notes with a deep regret that this injustice continues to cause much suffering to hundreds of thousands of Azerbaijani refugees, who have been deprived of their basic rights as a result of this illegal military occupation of their homes and lands.
