ERMENİLERİN AZERBAYCAN'DA SİVİLLERE YÖNELİK SALDIRILARI

On September 27, 2020 the armed forces of Armenia, blatantly violating the ceasefire regime
have launched another aggression against Azerbaijan, by intensively attacking the positions of
the armed forces of Azerbaijan along the frontline, as well as by deliberately subjecting to
artillery shelling residential areas of Tartar, Aghdam, Fuzuli and Jabrayil districts. On the
following days, densely populated residential areas – Shamkir, Beylagan, Aghdam, Fuzuli,
Jabrayil, Goranboy, Tartar, Barda, Aghjabadi and the city of Ganja were subjected to heavy
bombardment, including with mid-range missiles.
As a result, there have been casualties among civilians and military servicemen of Azerbaijan.
Extensive damage has been inflicted on many houses and other civilian infrastructure.
The new aggression by Armenia against Azerbaijan is yet another blatant violation of
fundamental norms and principles of international law, IHL, including the Geneva Conventions
of 1949 and its Additional Protocols, as well as the United Nations Security Council resolutions
822, 853, 874, 884 of 1993 demanding the immediate, complete and unconditional withdrawal
of the armed forces of Armenia from the occupied territories of Azerbaijan.
According to preliminary estimation, as of October 30, totally 91 civilians, including children,
women and elderly have been killed, more than 400 civilians have been wounded as a
consequence of heavy artillery shelling. As of October 29, 2406 private houses, 92 apartment
buildings and 423 civilian facilities were damaged and became unserviceable as a result of
armed attack.
Vehicles belonging to civilians became unserviceable, and numerous small and large horned
animals and haystacks were destroyed as well. Extensive damage was inflicted upon water,
energy and other civilian infrastructure.
The armed forces of Armenia do not even spare ambulances and medical facilities in a blatant
violation of IHL, in particular Article 35 of the First Geneva Convention of 1949.
Also, a medical worker was seriously injured as a result of the shooting by the armed forces of
Armenia of a sanitary medical vehicle, clearly marked with a white flag, collecting the bodies of
Armenian soldiers in the area of Sugovshan.
Every time when the humanitarian ceasefire was agreed between Azerbaijan and Armenia, the
armed forces of Armenia violated it by subjecting residential areas and civilian infrastructure in
Azerbaijan, including the city of Ganja, Barda, Mingechevir and Gabala to bombardment by
different types of missiles like Scud, Smerch, Tocka-U and etc, launched both from its own
territory and the occupied territories of Azerbaijan. The latest humanitarian ceasefire of
October 26 has already been repeatedly violated by the armed forces of Armenia.
Below are some of those cases recorded for the last two weeks:
- Ganja – the 2nd biggest city, in which more than 331 000 people reside and which is
located far from the frontline, was subjected to “SCUD/Elbrus” ballistic missile attack
Page 3 of 39

launched from the territory of Armenia on October 17, 2020, around 02:00. This attack
on a densely populated Ganja city has taken place for the third time in a row since
October 4, 2020 (See Section 3).
- Barda – a city located approximately 100 km from the border with Armenia and 30 km
away from the Contact Line, became a subject of attack by armed forces of Armenia.
The rockets with banned cluster munitions were launched from the Smerch MLRS at
densely populated areas of the Barda city, including its business center and
surroundings. The use of 9N235 cluster munitions from 9M55 Smerch rockets was
confirmed by Amnesty International.1 According to the preliminary reports, this terrorist
attack by Armenia led to death of 21 civilians and 70 others were wounded. Civil
infrastructure facilities and vehicles were extensively damaged. A day before, on
October 27, Barda district has already came under the 300 mm “Smerch” cluster
munition rocket attack by the armed forces of Armenia. As a result five civilians died,
including a toddler and thirteen civilians were injured.
- Mingechevir – the 4th biggest city in Azerbaijan, in which 106 000 people reside, hosts
the Mingechevir Water Hydropower Complex and is located far from the frontline was
hit with missiles on 17 October 2020 around 01:00.
- Tartar city has been under the heavy artillery shelling since September 27. Over the last
two weeks, the armed forces of Armenia have intentionally shelled private houses,
civilian infrastructure, including schools and even a funeral ceremony. On October 26,
Tartar city and the villages of the Tartar district became a subject of artillery attacks,
including by the use of 300 mm “Smerch” MLRS again. More detailed information on
civilian casualties is below.
- Ordubad district was hit with the missile by the armed forces of Armenia from the
territory of the occupied Gubadli region on October 15 at 10:44.

four civilians, including one journalist were injured on October 18. Artillery shelling of
the villages of the Aghdam district continued on October 26.
- Gabala, Kurdamir and Siyazan districts located far away from the frontline became a
subject of missile attacks launched from the Gafan and Jermukh regions of Armenia on
October 22. The attack on these residential areas resulted in injury of a resident of
Gabala and severe damage to five houses.
- Tovuz, Dashkasan and Agjabadi districts were also shelled by the armed forces of
Armenia on October 26.
- Gadabay, Tovuz and Dashkasan districts were again fired upon by the armed forces of

In order to repel military aggression by Armenia and to ensure the security of civilians and
densely populated residential areas inside the internationally recognized territories of
Azerbaijan, the Armed Forces of the Republic of Azerbaijan have launched counter-offensive
measures. Azerbaijan acts on its sovereign soil exercising its right of self-defense and takes
adequate and proportionate measures in full compliance with IHL to thwart the imminent
threat to its civilian population and ensure their security.
The political and military leadership of the Republic of Azerbaijan has declared on numerous
occasions since the start of the counter-offensive operations that only military objects and
installations will be targeted and civilians residing in the occupied territories as well as civilian
infrastructure therein will not be targeted. On October 04, the Ministry of Defense issued an
official appeal to those civilians calling them to stay away from the conflict zone, especially
from firing points, military facilities and military infrastructure of the armed forces of Armenia.
The Ministry further stated that appropriate conditions will be created for their evacuation
from the conflict zone and all their rights will be protected.2 On October 24, the Ministry of
Defense of the Republic of Azerbaijan renewed this call and expressed the readiness to take all
the necessary measures to ensure the security, food, medical care and other needs of the
civilian population who will cross to the Azerbaijani side. The Ministry of Defense also appealed
to the servicemen of the armed forces of Armenia to lay down their arms and surrender. As it
was underlined in the call of the Ministry of Defense, all the rights of prisoners of war and
civilians will be protected in accordance with International Humanitarian Law, and necessary
conditions, through international organizations, will be created for persons wishing to move to
third countries3

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF THE CONFLICT
After the collapse of the USSR, the international legal doctrine of uti possidetis juris secured the
international, regional and national legitimacy of the boundaries of newly independent States.
Under this legal doctrine, the former administrative borders of Azerbaijan SSR, which had
included Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast, were recognized by international law as the
legitimate borders of the newly independent Republic of Azerbaijan. This was later reaffirmed
in the UN Security Council resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884 on the conflict in and around the
Nagorno-Karabakh region of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh conflict started with the Armenians` open territorial
claims to Azerbaijan’s historical lands and ethnic provocations in1988. In the early 1980s, the
Armenians in the Soviet Union leadership, leaders of Armenian SSR and the Armenian Diaspora
abroad exploited the weakening of the central government of the USSR to embark on a
campaign to annex the Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast to Armenia.
The United Nations Security Council adopted the above-mentioned four resolutions in 1993 in
response to the occupation of the territories of Azerbaijan. These resolutions condemn the use
of force against Azerbaijan and the occupation of its territories; reaffirm respect for the
sovereignty and territorial integrity of Azerbaijan, inviolability of its international borders and

the inadmissibility of use of force for acquisition of territories; confirm that the Nagorno-
Karabakh region is part of Azerbaijan; and demand the immediate, full and unconditional

withdrawal of the occupying forces from all the occupied territories.
The resolutions also made specific reference to violations of IHL, including the displacement of
a large number of civilians in Azerbaijan, attacks on civilians and bombardments of its territory.
27 years after their adoption, the key demands of these UN SC resolutions remain
unimplemented. At present 20 percent of the territory of Azerbaijan – Nagorno-Karabakh and
7adjacent districts are under the occupation of Armenia. One million of IDPs and refugees fled
their homes to save their lives and settled indifferent parts of Azerbaijan.
These criminal actions of Armenia shattered the foundations of IHL and were aimed at creating
a new spiral of social and humanitarian crisis by disrupting the normal life of the civilian
population in areas close to the line of contact.
Over almost 30 years, Armenia has been pursuing the aim to consolidate its occupation of this
territory and maintain the status-quo created through illegal use of force against the
sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Azerbaijan accompanied by heinous war
crimes, crimes against humanity, such as genocide and ethnic cleansing.

SECTION 1. VIOLATIONS AGAINST CIVILIANS
1.1. Deaths Among the Civilian Population
The armed forces of Armenia with the use of artillery, rockets and missiles shelled Shamkir,
Beylagan, Aghdam, Fuzuli, Jabrayil, Goranboy, Tartar, Barda, Aghjabadi, Khizi, Tovuz, Yevlakh,
Gabala, Kurdemir and Ordubad districts and the cities of Ganja and Minghechevir.
It should be mentioned that Vagharshak Harutyunyan, the chief advisor of the Prime Minister of
Armenia in his interview to "Vesti" program on Russia TV channel on October 6, 2020 confessed
that strikes at peaceful settlements are of deliberate nature in order to cause panic."4
As a result of deliberate targeting of densely populated residential areas 91 civilians, including
10 children and 27 females were killed (see Annex 1). Thus, death toll among civilians has
increased by 26 in one week since the release of the 4th Interim Report on October 26, 2020.
The number of deaths among civilians in regions of Azerbaijan is as follows:

2.2. Targeting Civilian Infrastructure
Vital civilian infrastructures, such as electricity, gas, water, communication stations have also
been targeted. The armed forces of Armenia targeted the Oghuz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline,
which supplies drinking water to the Absheron Peninsula and is of special strategic importance
for Azerbaijan. Air Defense Forces of Azerbaijan neutralized the missile and its parts
consequently fell in the 250 meters perimeter from the pipeline.
10 kV Telestudio overhead line from 35/10 kV Khangarvand substation in Goranboy, and the 35
kV Gulustan and 10 kV Azizbeyov, 2ndSubartesian overhead lines from 110/30/10 kV Naftalan
substation were repeatedly fired and shelled upon in Goranboy. The 0.4 kV distribution
network in Tapgaragoyunlu is badly damaged. Repair and restoration work has not yet been
possible.
10 kV AzGes No3, Sarijali No11 overhead lines from 110/35/10 kV Tartar substation and 10kV
Borsunlu No3 from 35 kV Demirchiler substation were fired upon.
35 kV Horadiz-BoyukBahmanli overhead line, as well as 10 kV Shukurbayli, Gazakhlar, Babi and
Alkhanli overhead lines from the 35/10 kV Horadiz and Mahmudlu substation was fired upon in
different places and then restored in Fuzuli. In Alkhanli and Shukurbayli villages, the 0.4 kV
distribution network is damaged and out of service.
110 kV Tazakand-1, Tazakand-2, Khindiristan-1 and Khindiristan-2 overhead lines were fired
upon in Agdam. These lines have also been restored. In Aghjabadi, 10 kV Minakhorlu from
110/35/10 kV Karabakh substation and 10 kV PMK-4 overhead line from 35/10 kV Qiyamadinli
substation were also fired upon.

be limited. At present, natural gas is being supplied at about 50% of Fuzuli district. The gas
supply for 53 residential settlements has been suspended, except Tartar city and 51 villages, 25
villages of Aghjabadi, a village and 5 settlements of Aghdam.

SECTION 3. VIOLATIONS DURING THE HUMANITARIAN CEASEFIRE
Despite the humanitarian ceasefire agreed a few times during the month of October, armed
forces of Armenia continued to target civilian property and other civilian infrastructure in
densely populated residential areas. Below are some of those cases:
After October 11 (the day of heinous attack on Ganja) most of the casualties within one single
day among civilians have been recorded following the attacks on Ganja on October 17, 2020,
and on Barda on October 27-28.
On October 17, the Javadkhan area in the central part of Ganja was subjected to “SCUD/Elbrus”
ballistic missile attack launched from the territory of Armenia. Serious damages have been
inflicted upon civilians and infrastructure. Only in Ganja 25 civilians were killed and around 100
civilians were wounded since the humanitarian ceasefire was first agreed on October 10, 2020.
In view of systematic attacks on the city of Ganja, the following statement of Vagram Pogosian
(so called “spokesperson” of the illegal puppet regime established by Armenia in the occupied
territories of Azerbaijan) made on October 5, 2020, should be recalled: “A few more days and
I'm afraid that even archaeologists will not be able to find the place of Ganja. Get sober, before
it is too late.”5
On October 27, as a result of the 300 “Smerch” rocket attack with banned cluster munitions by
the armed forces of Armenia on the Garayusifly village of the Barda district, according to the
preliminary estimation, five civilians died, including a toddler and thirteen civilians were
injured. On October 28, around 1pm Armenia launched again 300mm “Smerch” rockets with
banned cluster munitions at densely populated areas of the city of Barda, including its business
center and surroundings. According to the preliminary reports, this act of terror by Armenia
resulted in death of 21 civilians and injuries of 70 civilians. Civil infrastructure facilities and
vehicles were extensively damaged.
Also, on October 15, the armed forces of Armenia have intentionally shelled a funeral ceremony
in the cemetery of the city of Tartar. As a result of this attack 4 civilians –Orujov Parviz (1989),
Rustamov Vasif (1962), Zamanov Shakir (1988), Amirov Isgandar (1967) have been killed and
four other civilians have been hospitalized with various injuries. Artillery shelling by the
armed forces of Armenia of the Jamilly village of the Tartar district led to death of its
two residents Anar Rasul oghlu (1994) and Guliyev Anar (1984). Shabanov Rasul (1972)
was wounded and his house severely damaged.

SECTION 4.VIOLATIONS WITH RESPECT TO CIVILIANS IN THE TERRITORIES UNDER CONTROL
OF ARMENIA
There are mass media reports indicating that Armenia does not take necessary measures with a
view to clearly distinguish journalists from combatants. Some photos suggest that in some
instances, journalists in the theatre of active military operations also act as combatants.

Photo 49 – 51: A person claimed to be a journalist wears military uniform and holds a machin gun in his hand

There are also media footages indicating civilians, including children are recruited to
participate in the military activities.

These photographic evidences testify to violation of Armenia of its obligation under Article 58
(c) of the Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions, which oblige the Party to the conflict
to take all feasible precautions to protect the civilian population and civilian objects under its
control against the effects of attacks.
Furthermore, involvement of the children in armed hostilities testifies to Armenia’s violations
under Article 77 (2) of Addition Protocol I and Article 38 of the Convention on the Rights of
Child prohibiting the recruitment of children into armed forces or not allowing them to take a
direct part in hostilities.

SECTION 5. CONCLUSIONS
The irrefutable evidence contained in the present Report reconfirms that attacks of the armed
forces of Armenia on civilian population and infrastructure in Azerbaijan is of systemic and
widespread nature. The statements by officials of Armenia and the so called “representatives”
of the illegal puppet regime established by Armenia in the occupied territories of Azerbaijan
also prove that the deliberate armed attacks on Azerbaijani civilians and infrastructure have
been preplanned and executed as a part of Armenia’s war strategy.
The new phase of aggression by Armenia unleashed in the early morning of September 27,
2020, has already led to severe violations of human rights:
1. Armenia has been making use of missiles, artillery and other weapons to target the
civilian settlements and objects as well as civilian infrastructure of vital importance
deliberately, indiscriminately and systematically which is a gross violation of IHL and
constitutes the war crime and crimes against humanity.
2. Armenia has been violating the right to life of the civilian population of the Republic of
Azerbaijan (Art 2 of ECHR).
3. The deliberate attacks on civilians and civilian infrastructure resulting from
discrimination based on the nationality and ethnicity in a clear violation of Art 14 of
ECHR. Of particular notice is a deliberate targeting of IDPs, their houses and other
private property. Being victim to 1991-1994 ethnic cleansing committed by Armenia,
they became target of Armenia yet another time. This constitutes the war crime and the
crime against humanity.
4. During military operations, Armenia has intensively used weapons and methods
prohibited by IHL. Medical facilities and vehicles have been targeted in violation of
Article 35 of the First Geneva Convention of 1949.
5. Deliberate and indiscriminate attacks on educational facilities constitute a violation of
Articles 51 and 52 of the Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions of 1949. This
is also a violation of the right to education of schoolchildren residing in areas targeted
by armed forces of Armenia as stipulated, inter alia, in Article 13 of 1966 International
Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
6. Serious damage has been inflicted upon private property of civilians. As a result, their
houses, livestock, vehicles and other private property have been destroyed and
damaged, that constitutes a violation of their right to property (Art. 1 of Protocol 1 of
ECHR).
7. Armenia violates its obligations under international human rights law and humanitarian
law with respect to civilians under its own control. This includes, among others, Articles
58 (c) and 77 (c) of Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions, as well as Article 38
of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

This survey is far from being comprehensive. However, it demonstrates the range, variety and
consistency of Armenia’s violations of international human rights law and IHL. Armenia bears
full responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity it has committed as a matter of
the international law of State responsibility, which includes its agents and officials and those for
whom it must be deemed liable by virtue of direct instruction.
