The ombudsman appealed to international organizations regarding Armenians destroying the graves of Azerbaijanis.
In the application given to Axar.az from the Office of the Ombudsman, it is stated:
"Another video showing the acts of vandalism committed by Armenia against Azerbaijanis has been published on social networks. As can be seen from the video, graves in the cemetery where our compatriots are buried in the liberated Zangilan region were deliberately destroyed by Armenians, grave monuments were made unrecognizable.
All these facts clearly prove that the military-political leadership of Armenia has been implementing a policy of hatred, enmity, intolerance and vandalism against Azerbaijan on ethnic and religious grounds for many years.
The brutal destruction of graves belonging to Azerbaijanis is a gross violation of the requirements of the 1954 Hague Convention "On the Protection of Cultural Property in Time of Armed Conflict", the 1972 UNESCO Convention "On the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage" and the 1954 European Cultural Convention. is a violation.
It strongly condemns the destruction and desecration of religious monuments and cemeteries in the liberated territories of Azerbaijan, as well as the mining of those territories, and international legal responsibility against the political and military leadership of Armenia, which once again blames international and regional organizations and national human rights institutions for committing such numerous acts of vandalism. I urge you to take decisive measures to take the necessary measures."
