Nagorno-Karabakh conflict: Residents of Stepanakert shelled, houses razed to the ground

The air-raid siren went on in the Armenian-controlled city of Stepanakert Thursday morning for nearly an hour and a half as it was being shelled by Azerbaijan, according to the defence ministry of the Nagorno-Karabakh region.

A house has almost been razed to the ground with a number of civilians injured as a result of the attack.

Residents of the area said the house destroyed by the shelling belongs to a hospital worker.

“She came home in the morning. After the strike, she was hospitalized with a head injury,” a neighbour said.

The office of Nagorno-Karabakh’s human rights ombudsman said more than a dozen shells had fallen on Stepanakert, the enclave’s largest city, a day after a maternity hospital there was struck.

Fighting has surged to its worst since the 1990s, when about 30,000 people were killed.

Both sides of the conflict regularly accuse each other of targeting civilian population and infrastructure.

    The Armenian government continues to carry out attacks targeting densely populated civilian settlements with highly destructive cruise missiles that seriously threaten human values and hurt the GENEVA convention … the whole world must carry out a total economic boycott against Armenia to force them to respect and implement the entire contents of the UN Resolution which they have ignored so far.

    It is a territory under Azerbaijani jurisdiction by all means of international law. It is clear that the Azerbaijani army is strong and, most importantly, experienced in all areas. Every year, the Azerbaijani army conducts more than 15 exercises with NATO and Turkey. And now it shows its strength and experience on the battlefield. Karabakh is Azerbaijan!
    Long live Azerbaijan! 🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿

    Very unfair news, doesn't show about Barda city which is far from conflict zone, 21 civilians killed, more than 70 wounded, but shows a pile of stones. It doesn't matter if you support those terrorist occupiers, Azerbaijan is winning the war. Long live Azerbaijan/ God bless you Azerbaijan!!!

    Long live Armenia. That land belongs to the Armenians historically and culturally. Laws be it international or whatever doesnt necessarily mean that its right and "lawful!" No one has the power to legislate against the truth, not even the UN!!

    Amnesty International has verified the use of banned cluster bombs by Armenia for the first time in the current Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, following an attack on the city of Barda in Azerbaijan.

    Yesterday, at approximately 1:30pm local time, one or several Smerch rockets were fired into Barda, striking a residential neighborhood close to a hospital. The Azerbaijani Prosecutor General’s Office has stated that at least 21 people were killed, with an estimated 70 more injured.

    Amnesty International’s Crisis Response experts verified pictures (taken by Vice News reporters in the city) of fragments of 9N235 cluster munitions from Russian-made 9M55 Smerch rockets, that appear to have been fired into the city by Armenian forces.

    “The firing of cluster munitions into civilian areas is cruel and reckless, and causes untold death, injury and misery,” said Marie Struthers, Amnesty International’s Regional Director for Eastern Europe and Central Asia..

    It has already been proved that Armenians can convince idiots like you of their lies. Last month, a Lithuanian journalist visited the site and noted in his memoirs that Armenians were spreading false information, and in fact these were images from irrelevant ruins. Armenia fired large ballistic missiles at major Azerbaijani cities with the aim of killing civilians. As a result, there were dozens of civilians. Before making stupid videos, I recommend that you do some research.
