"Scud missiles were fired from the territory of Armenia to the city of Ganja on October 11, 2020," "Scud missiles were fired from the territory of Armenia to the city of Ganja on October 11, 2020," Assistant of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Head of Foreign Policy Affairs Department of the Presidential Administration Hikmet Hajiyev said while informing members of the delegations of the Cooperation Council of Turkic Speaking States (Turkic Council) member states visiting Ganja about the missile strikes by the Armenian army on Ganja, APA reports.
Mr. Hajiyev said that another rocket hit Ganja on October 17, 2020: "At the end of October, Smerch missiles were fired at the city of Barda. In general, to launch missile strikes on various cities of Azerbaijan during the war without setting any targets, without setting legitimate targets. Here, too, there was only one goal - to kill civilians, to achieve maximum casualties among civilians. In Europe, no ballistic missiles have been used against civilians since World War II. During World War II, Nazi Germany fired ballistic missiles at British cities. During the military operations, Armenia also resorted to this way. In some cases, even greater risks were averted as a result of the pre-neutralization of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces. Several Scud missiles, ready for firing, were neutralized. One of the Armenian officials said that their goal was to prevent even archaeologists from finding Ganja. In Armenia, the people who ordered the missile strikes on Ganja are responsible for war crimes."
