Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Ganja residents sift through rubble as truce with Armenia breaks down

Residents of Ganja looked for their belongings in amongst rubble on Oct. 18 against the backdrop of a truce between Azerbaijan and Armenia that broke down within hours.

Locals sifted through the remnants of their homes as some formed a makeshift memorial to remember their loved ones killed in a missile attack on Oct. 17.

Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday of violating a new humanitarian ceasefire in fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, hours after it was agreed.

The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week-old Russian-brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting in the South Caucasus since the 1990s. At least 750 people have been killed since fighting began on Sept. 27.

    The World Leaders should be ashamed of themselves to continue to put their Citizens in harm's way while they r fighting each. God is not pleased. Remember, the Bible, Holy Quran tells u man will destroy themselves. Guess, what we r dead into Revelations. He has given us every opportunity to do what is Right; our Leaders r not doing it and God's ppl r paying the Price. The sad part is when God's hands r forced to step in the World as we know it will be no more. He is going to have to destroy the Evilness that exist within all of this World. This is sad and all human beings should be ashamed of themselves.

    This is just a madness , Azerbaijan and Armenia war …on the other hand, over 35 million ethnic Azerbaijani Turks who are living in neighbouring Iran ( almost 3 times more than republic of Azerbaijan population!) So the Muslim Iran’s government is supporting Christian Armenia for “some “ geopolitical and ethnic reason !!! At the moment, There is a huge unrest happening in Iran’s Turkish speaking cities . Armenia for sure later or sooner will withdraw from the occupied Azerbaijani territories ,who knows maybe these two countries eventually will become a good neighbours . My concern is that the real looser of this conflict will be Iran, as a result of Iranian government and/also its opposition groups pro Armenia positions , Iran’s national unity and mutual trust between ethnic Persians and ethnic Azerbaijani Turks is wounded very deeply. May god protect all the people of the Middle East from any future and bloody conflicts in the region!

    In the last few days Armenia lost 500 soldiers that's eq: to USA losing 50,000 men.
    These are big losses for a tiny state of just 2.9m people.

    If Armenia wants war they can get it in karabagh reigion but killing civilians out of warzone is just pathetic

    Why you dont mention that Armenia struck the military airport in Ganja. They never aimed at civilians. Its Azerbaijan that builds their military bases near villigaes and cities to use their population as human shields.

    This is a war crime. Targeting a city far away from the battle ground. The only target here are the civilians. Children were murdered here. Armenia is repeating what it did in the 1990s when whole villages were executed, including children.

    What can Armenia do ? When faced with illogical hatred from people claiming the land they live on is not theirs ?

    Targeting a civilian residential area with a ballistic missile is a crime against humanity.

    This is a terror against humanity. It was 1am Oct 17th, 2020 when Ganja was hit with a ballistic missile by armenia’s military forces from the territories of Armenia apparently from the municipality of Vardenis. Whole settlement including more than 5 apartment buildings, more than 100 houses ruined, nearly 70 people killed, including underage babies, young and old residents, over 200 wounded, some babies lost their parents, some parents lost their babies after 4 ballistic missile attacks in October till today by Armenia’s forces. This war should come to an end. Azerbaijan doesn’t attack any other country and didn’t hit Armenia’s cities till now. Azerbaijan will not give up its lands. Armenia should have its military withdrawn from Azerbaijan immediately, and peace will be their for both countries.

    This war has been going on and on and on and on. Are there any United Nations peacekeepers nearby?
