Following its two visits, the UN mission did not note any destruction of civilian infrastructure in Stepanakert due to the bombing of Baku. According to Azerbaijani media, “the UN Humanitarian Affairs Coordination Mission completed a week-long mission to Baku and Armenia to identify the urgent needs of refugees in the Artsakh region as well as in Armenia. The mission was led by Director of Coordination Ramesh Rajasingham, accompanied by UN Resident Coordinator Vladanka Andreeva and representatives of UN agencies in Artsakh. “Civil infrastructure and housing such as schools, the main hospital and residential buildings remained intact. The mission did not visit the villages during this trip, but will do so in the coming days and weeks,” the message said.
Western Armenia recalls that on September 19 and 20, Baku carried out a new aggression against Artsakh. The capital Stepanakert was subjected to massive artillery bombardment. The city’s population spent more than 24 hours in shelters and cellars.
