Samad Seyidov: Azerbaijan to raise issue at PACE over latest Armenian atrocity in Fuzuli
- 05 July 2017
A number of international organizations, as well as the Council of Europe, will be informed about the Armenian shelling of civilians in the Alkhanli village of Azerbaijan’s Fuzuli region in the evening of July 4, Samad Seyidov, Head of Azerbaijan’s delegation to PACE, said in a statement to APA.
He stressed that last night’s killing of an elderly woman and an underage child by Armenians is a heinous crime against humanity that violates the rules of war.
"Of course, the Council of Europe, as well as other international organizations, should evaluate this. We are going to provide facts and photographs, and demand all international organizations give it legal assessment. The Armenians won’t be able to cover up this terrible fact. The blood of that elderly lady and the baby will be avenged,” he said.
Seyidov also noted that there are a lot of issues that are going to be discussed at the next PACE session and this particular incident will be brought to attention.
"This issue will be raised at all meetings,” he said.
On July 4, around 20:40, Armenian armed forces shelled the Alkhanly villageof Fizuli region with 82mm- and 120-mm-caliber mortars, including heavy grenade launchers.
As a result of this provocation, village residents Guliyeva Sahibe Idris gizi (1967) and Guliyeva Zakhra Elnur gizi (2015) died. Guliyeva Sarvinaz Iltifat gizi (1965) was wounded.
