“As the Azerbaijani Defence Ministry reported, Armenia intensively fired on the positions of Azerbaijani Armed Forces using heavy weapons, committed diversions. Armenian Armed Forces shelled the settlements near the frontline, where civilians live closely. The acts intentionally committed by Armenian side, killed and injured several civilians, damaged personal property”, Hikmat Hajiyev, spokesman for the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry, said.

According to Hajiyev, International community must strongly condemn the Armenian armed forces’ shelling the civilian facilities on Azerbaijan’s territory, which is a flagrant violation of commitments undertaken by Armenia within the international humanitarian law: “As an aggressive country, Armenian bears responsibility for the current situation. These acts of Armenia coincide with the day of occupation of Kelbejer on April 2, 1993. Though the four resolutions No. 822, 853, 874 and 884, passed by the United Nations Security Council, demand withdrawal of occupying forces, Armenian side continues keeping the territories under occupation, intentionally aggravation of the situation and targeting the civilians. Azerbaijani side repeatedly stated that existence of Armenian forces prevents settlement of the conflict and causes the situation to be intensified. In order to achieve settlement of the conflict and restore the peace in the region, the UN Security Council must demand Armenia to withdraw its troops from the occupied territories in accordance with the four resolutions”.
