Today at about 11:00, a car with employees of TV channels and news agencies sent to the Kalbajar was blown up by an anti-tank mine in the direction of Kalbajar’s Susuzlug village. As a result, the operator of the Azerbaijan Television and Radio Broadcasting CJSC (AzTV) Siraj Abishov, an employee of the Azerbaijan Staten News Agency (AZERTAC) Maharram Ibrahimov, the deputy representative of the Mayor’s Office of the Kalbajar district in the administrative-territorial district of Susuzlug village Arif Aliyev, were killed. Four more people got injured and were hospitalized.

APA Media Group LLC issued a statement on the death of media representatives.

The Statement reads: 

"We were deeply shocked by the death of two of our colleagues in the Kalbajar region where they hit a landmine planted by Armenian terrorists. APA Media Group extends its deepest condolences to the Azerbaijani journalist community, media organizations, and the families of journalists.

During the First Karabakh War, several of our colleagues became victims of Armenian terror while on duty. At the same time, during the Second Patriotic War, journalists faced quite risky situations. During the 44-day war, Armenian terrorists repeatedly opened fire on journalists wearing professional jackets, resulting in injuries among our colleagues. Unfortunately, despite the fact that several months have passed since the end of the war, the Armenian terror is still going on, and today we have lost two colleagues.

For months, the Azerbaijani government and the Azerbaijani public have been demanding that Armenia provide information on minefields and mine maps in accordance with the rules of war and international conventions. Unfortunately, Armenia still insists on this, and the international community continues to remain silent, approaching it with double standards.

For months, the Azerbaijani government and the Azerbaijani public have been demanding from Armenia to provide information on minefields and mine maps in accordance with the rules of war and international conventions. Unfortunately, Armenia still insists on this, and the international community continues to remain silent, approaching it with double standards.

As a result, more than 100 civilians and servicemen have been killed in landmine explosions in Azerbaijan since the end of the war.

Today, two journalists were killed in a mine explosion.

APA Media Group calls on all international organizations, journalists, and media organizations not to remain silent about this terror, to condemn Armenia and to put pressure on this country to submit mine maps to Azerbaijan."
