Nagorno-Karabakh: Stepanakert hospitals receive wounded after violence erupts in region

Disputed Territory, Stepanakert
September 27, 2020 at 23:21 GMT -00:00 · Published

Nagorno-Karabakh hospitals received dozens of wounded people on Sunday, after heavy fighting erupted between Yerevan and Baku over the disputed region.

Footage filmed at the Republican medical centre and Arevik Children's Hospital shows an ambulance evacuating wounded as the medical staff was trying to help.

One of the doctors at the Arevik Children's Hospital described the situation.

“We have 30 wounded and there are operations ongoing. Some patients who were in hospitals were evacuated into the bunker, and the seriously ill people are in the hospital. We are working in a tense mode and are ready to receive the wounded.”

Another doctor went on to say that many children were admitted to the hospital with injuries of varying severity.

“This morning, three children came to us, two of them arrived in their cars. Two have light injuries. One child was brought by ambulance from Martuni, he is being operated on and he is now in a serious condition. Children have been moved to bomb shelters, and those being treated are in a safe zone,” he said.

The Armenian Ministry of Defence reported that initially Karabakh was subject to air and missile attacks from Azerbaijan. The spokesperson of the president of the unrecognised republic of Nagorno-Karabakh Vahram Pogosyan reported that the army of Azerbaijan shelled civilian villages and the capital city of Stepanakert on Sunday morning.

Earlier the Defence Ministries of Azerbaijan and Armenia posted footage showing the alleged shooting from both sides.

On Sunday, Yerevan announced that the armed forces of Azerbaijan initiated an attack in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Baku, on the other hand, reported Armenia shooting at positions of the Azerbaijani army and inhabited localities - villages in Teterskiy, Agdamskiy, Fizulinskiy, and Jebrailskiy regions. Armenia stated that Azerbaijan lost two helicopters, 14 drones as well as many armed vehicles, meanwhile the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan denied that information. 

 

The Azerbaijani Ministry of defence announced that the country's army did not attack any civilian settlement in the Armenian side, stressing that the Armenian army launched the attack, in response to which the Azerbaijani army started a counter-offensive operation. 

The Azerbaijani Ministry noted that there were civilian casualties as a result of Armenian attacks on settlements on the border. 

After the escalation of the conflict, the president of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, Arayik Harutyunyan, declared a state of martial law.

 

In a televised address, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev stressed that his country would not leave Armenia's actions unanswered, adding that “enemy's positions” were being attacked as and military equipment has been destroyed.

In response to Baku's statements, Armenian defence Minister David Tononyan stated that the army of the Republic of Artsakh suspended all enemy attempts to advance, adding that the Armenian army “is ready to provide any support to ensure the security of the population of Artsakh." 

Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan declared martial law in the country, as well as a general mobilisation. "Dear compatriots, now, by the decision of the government, martial law and general mobilisation are declared in Armenia. I urge all personnel to come to recruitment offices," he said. 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed full support for Azerbaijan in connection with the escalation of the conflict with Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh. 

The Russian Foreign Ministry urged both countries “to immediately cease fire and start negotiations in order to stabilize the situation."

The head of the Russian MFA in dialogue with his Armenian counterpart Zohrab Mnatsakanyan offered mediation attempts to help de-escalate the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh. 

Leaders of France, Austria, Germany, and other European countries also called for a suspension of military operations and negotiations.
