Azerbaijan: At least 21 dead and dozens injured as shelling hits Barda

Azerbaijan, Barda
October 28, 2020 at 18:58 GMT +00:00 · Published

At least 21 people were killed and dozens were injured in a missile attack that struck an active district of Barda on Wednesday.

Footage shows several destroyed vehicles, damaged buildings, and what appear to be shell casings on the road at the site of the attack.

According to Azeri authorities, the attacker used cluster munitions to bomb a densely populated area and causing severe damage to commercial facilities and infrastructure.

The Prosecutor General's Office, which communicated the latest death toll in a statement, referred the attack as “crimes committed by the Armenian armed forces,” while the Armenian authorities denied any role in the military aggression, saying the accusations made by the Azeri authorities were groundless.

Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the disputed territory of Nagorno-Karabakh that resumed on September 27 is considered to be the heaviest since the end of the Nagorno-Karabakh War in 1994.
