- 06 July 2017
Head of Azerbaijan’s Presidential Administration Ramiz Mehdiyev condemned Armenia’s July 4 provocation that resulted in the death of a child and an elderly woman and left another person injured.
“On July 4, Armenian armed forces carried out a new large-scale provocation at the contact line of troops, shelling the Alkhanli village of Azerbaijan’s Fuzuli region. As a result, a child and an elderly woman lost their lives. Another person was wounded and there was also considerable damage to property,” Mehdiyev said, APA reported citing AZERTAC.
He noted that this latest bloody crime once again exposed to the world the terrorist essence of Armenia’s military-political regime.
On July 4 at about 20:40 (GMT+4 hours), the Armenian armed forces again violated ceasefire and, using 82-mm and 120-mm mortars and grenade launchers, shelled Azerbaijani positions and territories where the civilian population lives, namely the Alkhanli village of the country’s Fuzuli district, thereby grossly violating the requirements of international law, the Azerbaijani defense ministry said earlier.
As a result of this provocation, the residents of the village Sahiba Guliyeva, 50, and Zahra Guliyeva, 2, were killed. Sarvinaz Guliyeva, 52, was injured.
