We express our condemnation on the recent Armenian attack on Azerbaijani city which leaves several civilians dead.
The Armenia agression has violated the humanitarian ceasefire with attacks on residential areas of Ganja city, leaving at least nine civilians dead and dozens wounded.
The Armenian forces have ignored the ceasefire agreement. Its missile attack on Azerbaijan’s Ganja city killed nine people including four women.
According to the report as many as 34 others – among them 16 women and six children – were wounded, and Armenian attacks have so far destroyed 1,165 houses, 57 buildings, and 146 public buildings.
Armenia’s political-military leadership bears responsibility for the perpetrated crimes.
Attacking the civilian population and critical energy infrastructure in Mingachevir city is war crimes and genocidal which cannot be tolerated.
The missile attacks on Ganja city is barbaric.
TRT World’s Andrew Hopkins reported infrastructure damages.
Azerbaijan also reported that the Armenian forces attacked in the direction of Hadrut and Jabrayil overnight in order to reoccupy its claimed lost territories.
We demand Armenia to abide by the terms of the Russian-brokered truce.
The attack on Ganja city is an agression that must be condemned and Armenian forces must be held accountable.
This is a provocations by the Armenian administration to widen the conflict outside of the Azerbaijani territories under occupation.
We call the international community to intervene to halt the attrocities.
Temporary ceasefire must be complied and any breach of the truce should be responded sternly.
We register our concern that the conflict left hundreds of people dead in the biggest escalation of the decades-old conflict over occupied Karabakh.
Since 1991 when the Armenian military occupied Upper Karabakh, it has violated the international recognition that Nagorno-Karabakh is a territory of Azerbaijan.
When Armenian forces targeted Azerbaijani settlements , it legitimizes a resistance from Azerbaijan.
It is clear since four UN Security Council and two UN General Assembly resolutions, as well as many international organisations, points to the demand that the occupying Armenian forces must withdraw, is the only solution.
