24 Azerbaijani civilians killed as a result of enemy’s targeting peaceful population
Azerbaijan's Prosecutor General's Office said that 24 civilians were killed as a result of Armenian army’s targeting peaceful population.
"121 civilians have been hospitalized with various injuries, and 24 persons have been killed so far as a result of heavy artillery and missile shelling of Azerbaijani residential settlements. Moreover, as a result of intensive heavy artillery and missile shelling by the Armenian army, 306 houses and 56 civilian facilities were severely damaged," the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office said.
In gross violation of the norms and principles of international law, the Geneva Conventions of 1949 and their Additional Protocols, the UN Security Council resolutions, Armenia is subjecting to intensive fire the Azerbaijani cities and densely populated areas that are far from the area of hostilities deliberately targeting the civilian population of Azerbaijan.
The Armenian armed forces committed a large-scale provocation, subjecting the positions of the Azerbaijani army to intensive shelling from large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery installations of various calibers in the front-line zone on Sept. 27 at 05:00 (Msk).
