The Israel embassy in Azerbaijan shared a publication in connection with the 32nd anniversary of the January 20 tragedy, Defence.az reports. 


"The Embassy of Israel joins the people of Azerbaijan in commemorating Black January", embassy tweeted.

Note, today, Israeli Deputy Ambassador Doron Peer visited the Alley of Martyrs.

On January 20, 1990, a bloody massacre was committed against civilians who had taken to the streets and squares in protest at Armenia's territorial claims against Azerbaijan and the biased policy of the former USSR leadership.

On the night of January 19-20, 1990, 147 people were killed, 744 were injured and 841 were illegally arrested after Soviet troops entered Baku. The Soviet troops also destroyed 200 apartments and houses, as well as private and public property.

January 20 is immortalized in the memory of the Azerbaijani nation as a Day of the Nationwide Sorrow.
