Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Azerbaijan says 13 civilians killed, 40 wounded in Ganja

Azerbaijan and Armenia accused each other on Saturday of fresh attacks in violation of a week-old Russian-brokered truce that has failed to halt the worst fighting in the South Caucasus since the 1990s.

Baku, Azerbaijan’s capital, said 13 civilians were killed and more than 50 wounded in the city of Ganja by an Armenian missile attack, while Yerevan accused Azerbaijan of continued shelling.

The Azeri Prosecutor General’s office said a residential area in the country’s second-largest city, miles away from Nagorno-Karabakh, was shelled by missile strikes and around 20 apartment buildings had been hit.

A Reuters photographer in Ganja saw rescuers working at the scene on Saturday morning. Some houses had been almost leveled. An excavator was clearing the debris.

0:00- Ganja, Azerbaijan
1:58- Stepanakert, Nagorno-Karabakh

    You would think they would only be shelling military units, not cities. Sad.

    This is a war crime committed by terorist proxy state Armenia. This is the real face of Armenia which western countries do not want to see. This is a crime against humanity. This is the violation of ceasefire by the terorist proxy state Armenia. Terorist proxy state Armenia is attacking the civillian regions of Azerbaijan. Yesterday a 15 years old girl died after the attack of Armenia on Ganja and today it was her birthday.

    Dear friends. The number of Azerbaijanis who died on the battlefield in Karabakh exceeded 7,000. Who can, please translate into Azerbaijani the works of ancient historians and geographers of the Roman Empire, Persia and Greece, which States that Nagorno-Karabakh is Armenia and has belonged to Armenia since the Roman Empire. So that the Azerbaijani people do not make mistakes and risk their heads for the sake of Aliyev and his clan, they should know about it. I hope that when the Azerbaijani people find out the truth, they will not fight with the Armenians for lands that do not belong to Azerbaijan. In 1921, at Stalin's insistence, Karabakh was incorporated into Soviet Azerbaijan because it had far-reaching plans in this regard. Today there is no Stalin, there is nothing Soviet, there is no Soviet Azerbaijan or Soviet Karabakh , but there is an independent Azerbaijan and an independent Artsakh. Let the Azerbaijanis finally understand this.

    Oh My ! That's almost as bad as the Covid Surge in Quebec and Ontario. Perhaps we should send Doug Ford over to take care of the situation but alas this one is a real nasty situation with actual deaths and cases (Wounded). Just make em all wear masks and close the bars, that'll do the trick eh ! They report this the same way they report Covid. No nuance and no background info and certainly no perspective. Just the same old terrible journalism practiced by stenographers.

    It is very interesting, if azeri people had been living for a long time in this lands, and as they say, armenians came from somewhere, anybody can answer where is azerbaijanian alphabet for example? Why in territory of Artsakh we see 5th century churches? Armenian occupied this lands? Maybe we occupied it from dinosaurus?

    Amenia is terrorist state, They killed 50.000 Turkish civilians during first world war just to scare people to leave from the lands they want to occupy from Turkey so they did same to Azerbaijan 30 years ago to occupy karabag and scare people, they killed more than 10.000 civilians in Azerbaijan and forced 1.000.000 people to leave their lands from Karabag, This is the way they think and act to gain lands from others.
