Continuing unsuccessful attempts to achieve any of the set military goals and suffering serious losses in manpower and equipment, the armed forces of Azerbaijan, under the direct control and command of Turkey, continue with a rapidly growing intensity attack against the peaceful population and civilian infrastructure of the Republic of Artsakh. The cities of Stepanakert, Shushi, Martakert, Martuni, Hadrut and other communities across the republic continue to be under massive missile and bomb attacks. The Artsakh Ministry of Foreign Affairs has noted this in a statement released Tuesday morning.

“The ongoing attacks on civilians and civilian objects leave no illusion that the real purpose of the aggressive war unleashed by Azerbaijan and Turkey, with support of the terrorist organizations fighters from the Middle East is the extermination of the people of Artsakh in continuation of the policy of the Genocide against Armenians”, the statment reads.
