BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 28
“Today, the Armenian armed forces once again grossly violated the humanitarian ceasefire regime by subjecting to missile attack the city of Barda, located outside the combat zone. As a result of Smerch cluster missile shelling, four civilians, including a seven-year-old girl were killed. Fourteen people, including four children were seriously wounded," says an Instagram post by First Vice-President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mehriban Aliyeva.
In a post on her official Instagram page, Mehriban Aliyeva said: “Killing of civilians during the armed conflict is a gross violation of the 1949 Geneva Conventions and the norms of international humanitarian law as a whole. How many more innocent souls must be killed by the Armenian aggressors so that the international community can stop watching these crimes in silence? I extend my deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of those who lost their lives and wish the injured a speedy recovery. We will liberate our lands from the aggressors and put an end to these crimes.
May Almighty God bless our Motherland!”
