“The Order “About measures related to assessment and elimination of the damage caused to the civilian population, state property, including infrastructure facilities, as well as entities engaged in entrepreneurial activity as a result of aggression of the armed forces of the Republic of Armenia upon the territory of the Republic of Azerbaijan beginning from September 27, 2020” was signed on November 6 by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan”, APA
H. Hajiyev said the elimination of damage caused to citizens has always been in the first place for President Ilham Aliyev: “We also saw the care of the head of state for citizens in April events of 2016, new houses were built then for citizens whose property was seriously damaged. The assessment of the damage caused to the civilian population was also conducted during Tovuz events and the damage caused to citizens was eliminated”.
Assistant to Azerbaijani President noted that starting from September 27 Armenian armed forces fired 30 thousand projectiles, more than 227 rockets on civilian facilities: “Even ballistic, cassette missiles have been used. Targeting civilian facilities was part of Armenia’s military doctrine. Such steps were also taken at the beginning of the 1990s, we saw this in the Khojaly genocide too. Armenia’s goal was to panic civilians and to create a humanitarian catastrophe in Azerbaijan. They applied the same tactic in Tovuz events and after September 27. In 2018, the Chief of General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces stated that 500,000 Azerbaijani civilians living along the borders are their target. However, as a result of the command of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, Armenia’s military goals failed. This time Armenia targeted Ganja, Mingachevir cities that are far away from the frontline, Khizi, Siyazan cities located on the Caspian coast. This is a strategy that continues from the Khojaly tragedy. The destruction of Armenia's legitimate military facilities under the leadership of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief has prevented the widespread implementation of this policy.”
