“The military-political leadership of the aggressor Armenia continues to commit acts of terrorism against the civilian population, grossly violating the norms and principles of international law.

121 civilians have been hospitalized with various injuries, and 24 persons have been killed so far as a result of heavy artillery and missile shelling of Azerbaijani residential settlements. Moreover, as a result of intensive heavy artillery and missile shelling by the Armenian army, 306 houses and 56 civilian facilities were severely damaged,” press service of the Prosecutor General's Office of Azerbaijan told AZERTAC.
