In Armenia's attack on Nagorno-Karabakh, 76 children, 487 people were injured and 275 people were taken as prisoners. The fate of 150 missing since that date is unknown.
After this attack on the civilian population, twenty percent of Azerbaijani territory was occupied by Armenia. The number of Azerbaijani, who had to leave their homeland close to one million.
The population living in Khojaly consisted of Azerbaijan and Azov Muslims. The cause of the massacre was to evacuate the Karabakh region.
