October 24, 2020 at 10:06 GMT +00:00 · Published

Mourners brought flowers and messages of support to one of the buildings in Ganja in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh damaged by shelling last week, as footage filmed on Friday shows.

Azerbaijan's Ministry of Emergency Situations blamed Armenia for the attack which killed 13 civilians. 52 injured were recovered from under the rubble. Assistant to the President of Azerbaijan, Hikmet Hajiyev, nearly 20 buildings were destroyed during the shelling.

The Armenian Ministry of Defense denied it was behind the attack. "In response to the statements of the Azerbaijani military-political leadership, no fire was opened from the territory of the Republic of Armenia or by the Armed Forces of Armenia in the direction of Azerbaijan", - said spokesperson of the department Shushan Stepanyan.

Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the territory of Nagorno-Karabakh broke out on September 27.

The hostilities have continued despite Yerevan and Baku agreeing on a second humanitarian truce on October 17.
