Azerbaijan's Presidential Aide warns Armenia

Armenian armed forces continue to fire on Azerbaijan's residential territories using heavy artillery and other large-caliber weapons, Assistant to the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan-Head of the Department of Foreign Policy Affairs of the Presidential Administration of the Republic of Azerbaijan Hikmat Hajiyev said, ONA reports.

H.Hajiyev noted that as a result of deliberate and targeted artillery shelling of settlements by the Armenian armed forces, 17 civilians including 2 children were killed, 51 people were injured. Public and private property were damaged: “By these acts, Armenia shows that it is a country outside of civilized values and is once again a country that commits treacherous attacks on civilians and minors. Targeting or deliberately killing of civilians during the condition of military operations is a war crime. Armenian state and the political leadership of Armenia bears responsibility for this.

As a next aggression act against our country, the territory of Azerbaijan has today subjected to rocket fire from the direction of Gorus region of Armenia. This is already the second attack act carried out against Azerbaijan by the territory of Armenia. The first attack has been carried out by the territory of Vardenis region of Armenia. As a result of rocket blow nearly 20 houses were damaged in the newly built IDP village of Jojug Merjanli.

We warn Armenian side that if attacks against Azerbaijan from Armenian territory are not stopped, adequate measures will be taken against legitimate military targets which carry out firing.”
