Nagorno-Karabakh: Civilians and churches under fire – BBC News

Half the population of the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh have been displaced by fighting.

On both sides of the conflict, Armenian and Azeri civilians have been killed.

Within hours of a temporary truce agreed in Moscow, fresh shelling was reported by both Armenian and Azerbaijani forces.

This is not a religious war, but many Armenians are sheltering in churches and fear they may be shelled.

    Эрдоган – спонсор всемирниго терроризма, наполнил весь Кавказ террористами-головорезцами. И эта угроза для всего мира. Теперь этот криминалист несет ответственость за все теракты региона.

    Baseless territorial claims of armenian government lead to current situation. Armenian government is in charge of further consequences. We just want armenian forces get the hell out of internationally recognized and historical lands of Azerbaijan. Our war is not with armenian civilians. But armenia forces intentionally target our residential buildings having nothing to do with military object. One solution to stop war is to force armenian government stop policy of barbarism and vandalism against azerbaijani populations. Apply sanctions armenia to fullfil 4 UN resolutions accepted 30 years ago.

    Armenia and Artsakh are the gates to Europe. If you let Terrorists destroy it, you will have them at your home. The Terrorism now has a new Face, it is Erdogan and new name Turan. They are not only in now Artsakh, but they are also now in Russia and in Greece and in Cyprus and in Syria and in Lybia and .. what is the next?
    If you think they are not in US, see this:

    I condemn the attack on Religious places and on civilians. But BBC is doing yellow journalism here, showing only the damage of Armenia. First of all, the land for which the war took place belongs to Azerbaijan. And in this war, Armenia has also attacked Azerbaijan's Ganja city. Civilians died there. Why doesn't BBC cover those stories? This is pure yellow journalism.

    It’s really a shame on humanity to have war in the 21th century, especially in the time of coronavirus. And it’s obvious that Azarbajan don’t let Armenians to live in their historical lands! Stop the aggression and let people live in the peace!

    Dear BBC How can you say ceasefire was broken by both sides. I appreciate the fact you are trying to be fair and it's difficult to not be confused when Azerbaijan repeats, mirrors what Armenia says about them, but if you want to be fair, please explain me how can the tiny country with 3mln population afford to start a war against 2 giant oil-rich countries with 10mln +80mln. We don't have the weapons they have, we don't have millions people we can afford to lose, we don't need this war. Unless you've done a deal with Azerbaijan and Turkey, how can you say "both sides", enough is enough, stop being a fence sitter. Do we hit their mosques? Do we turn their mosqoes into churches? We have a beautiful mosque in Yerevan, please visit and see how we take care of it. It might not be a religion war for armenians, but it is for them. I'm sure they won't calm down after taking Artsakh. As Erdoghan already mentioned in his speech "I'm going to finish what my grandparents started 100 years ago", meaning the armenian. Please explain me why the world is silent, why is the world closing it's eyes,did they bribe you all? Yes I'm screaming now, as no one hears us, my heart is broken and my eyes are tired of crying. Why is this happening?

    BBC is such a hypocritical news channel. Why you not talking about armenians targeting civilians. Just 2 days ago they hit the second biggest city in Azerbaijan. You only picking things to show people like any other media organizations. Showing Armenians like victims. Not mentioning about who started the war and who is bombing the civilians.
