No: 241, 11 October 2020, Press Release Regarding Armenia’s Attacks On Ganja

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 11.10.2020

We strongly condemn the rocket attacks of Armenia on Ganja, second largest city of Azerbaijan, early in the morning today in violation of the humanitarian ceasefire.

This attack, which we learnt that hit an apartment building in Ganja 100 kilometers away from the conflict zone, caused nine civilian deaths and wounded 39 others, is the latest example of the provocations of Armenian administration to widen the conflict outside of the Azerbaijani territories under occupation.

At the same time, this attack once again shows that Armenia does not shy away from violating international humanitarian law for continuing its illegitimate occupation and does not understand the meaning of ceasefire.

The aggressive actions of Armenia are not surprising and constitute a clear manifestation of its well-known occupying and offensive mentality. It is time for the international community to say stop to this lawlessness.

We wish God’s mercy upon the Azerbaijani martyrs who lost their lives, speedy recovery to the wounded and convey our condolences to the brotherly Azerbaijan. Turkey stands with Azerbaijan as always.
