Early morning on September 27th, 2020, Azerbaijan launched missile attacks along the entire line of contact of the Republic of Artsakh, targeting both military and innocent civilians. Consequently, the Defense Army of the Republic of Artsakh was forced into war to protect its people and homeland. During the 45 days of war, Azerbaijan, backed by Turkey, conducted horrible war crimes by using mercenary terrorists, heavy artillery, banned cluster bombs and chemical weapons. This resulted in the killing and wounding of dozens of civilians, including the elderly and children.
On November 10th, Armenia was forced to sign a painful ceasefire agreement with Azerbaijan and Russia, giving up a big part of its lands to stop the massacre of its people. While Armenia enters into further stages of negotiations, it hopes the OSCE Minsk Group and the other world powers will help Armenia protect its rights by standing by truth and justice.
