On September 6, at around 7:30 pm, from the positions located in the direction of Karmir Shuka-Taghavard settlements of Martuni region of the Artsakh Republic (Nagorno-Karabakh), the Azerbaijani side fired at the Armenian positions in the direction of peaceful settlements. Artsakh Ombudsman Gegham Stepanyan wrote about this on his Facebook page.
The house of one of the residents of Taghavard community was damaged as a result of the shots fired. From the shots fired in the direction of the house, 3 bullets hit the wall of the house, 1 bullet hit the window of one of the bedrooms.
Six civilians, one of whom is a minor, live in the house damaged by the Azerbaijani shootings.
After midnight, the Azerbaijani side continued firing, as a result of which no material damage was reported.
Russian peacekeepers and Artsakh law enforcement bodies were informed about the incident.
“Azerbaijani positions located near peaceful settlements are a direct, real threat to the life, health and other vital rights of the people of Artsakh, disrupting the normal life and activities of the population in those settlements.
The Azerbaijani side, particularly the perpetrators of the incidents, are not held accountable for the incidents, which is the basis for the recurrence of such incidents.
A comprehensive investigation into all ceasefire violations, including the involvement of Russian peacekeepers, is on the agenda,” the Artsakh Ombudsman wrote.
