Man wounded as result of Armenian Army's missile attack on Barda dies

Twenty-five-year-old Niftali Pashayev was severely injured as a result of a missile attack on the center of Azerbaijan’s Barda city by the Armenian Armed Forces on October 28, 2020, the Azerbaijani General Prosecutor's Office said.

Despite the efforts of doctors, Pashayev died today in the hospital.

Thus, the number of Azerbaijani civilians killed since September 27 as a result of artillery and missile attacks by the Armenian Armed Forces has reached 92. Some 404 civilians were wounded, including those in severe condition.

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). The command of the Azerbaijani Army decided to launch a counter-offensive operation of Azerbaijani troops along the entire front to suppress the combat activity of the Armenian armed forces and ensure the safety of the civilian population. To date, Fizuli and Jabrayil districts, including the cities of Jabrayil and Fizuli, the city of Zangilan and part of Zangilan district, part of the Gubaldi region, the city of Gubadli, the city of Hadrut, and a number of villages in the Khojavend region, the villages of Sugovushan and Talish in the Terter region, as well as the strategically important Murovdag mountain were liberated.
