Azeri football manager calls for killing Armenian women, children, elderly

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nurlan Ibrahimov, a manager with the Azerbaijani football club Qarabağ, has called for killing Armenian women, children and elderly "without feeling sorry".

In a now deleted Facebook post, Ibrahimov called for creating "a gang of killers", also referencing Turkey's Genocide of 1.5 million innocent Armenians who he said were treated "in a language they understood."

Hate speech and calls for violence against Armenians have surged to an unprecedented level in Azerbaijan, especially amid Baku's aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh. Turks and Azeris living abroad, meanwhile, have been threatening Armenians and attacking them during peaceful gatherings and rallies.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
