On 5 October, the enemy shelled Agdam District from various directions, killing Eyvaz Musa Rahimov (b. 1954); during this bombardment, Uchoghlan village dweller Mehman Aghalar Safarov (b. 1971) was wounded and subsequently admitted to hospital.
Another heavy artillery strike on Agdam District was committed on 7 October 2020; a shell ripped through a residential house in Khindiristan village, killing Zarifa Gamboy Aliyeva (b. 1945); her house sustained severe damage.
During the bombardment of Chemenli and Zangishali villages in Agdam District at around 7 PM on 10 October, a shell burst claimed the life of Chemenli village dweller Gunduz Tariel Huseynov (b. 1974).
It was quite systematically during the Patriotic War that Armenian military forces used heavy artillery and ballistic missiles to pound Agdam District.
Using heavy artillery and ballistic missiles against Ganja, Barda, Yevlakh, Beylagan, Agdam, Terter, Qabala, Goranboy, Aghjabadi, Khizi and other localities and districts, Armenian armed forces would grossly violate the norms and principles of international law, the Geneva Convention of 1949 and Additional Protocols thereto, as well as judgements and resolutions of UN Security Council. The Armenian military transgressions killed a total of 94 non-combatants, 12 children and 27 women among them; 414 civilians were wounded; 12 292 residential and non-residential facilities were damaged, as well as 288 vehicles and 1018 farms.
Apart from civilian casualties, Armenian bombardments also dealt damage to residential houses, industrial facilities, schools and a hospital, prompting a massive evacuation.
Some influential international organizations denounced Armenian military forces for violation of laws of war and rocket and artillery strikes on towns and villages that had resulted in civilian casualties.
The General's Prosecutor Office of the Republic of Azerbaijan stated that it would do its best to exposure Armenia as an occupying and aggressor country on a global scale, and appeal, pursuant to local and international law, to international authorities so that the culprit is brought to accountability and suffer the full penalty of sanctions.
We firmly believe that justice will soon triumph, and Armenian butchers will be brought to fair punishment for barbarous slaughter of peaceful people in Ganja and other towns and regions.
