Azerbaijani NGOs Appeal to UN Security Council, Secretary General over Armenian attack on Ganja

17 October 2020 [13:40] - TODAY.AZ

The non-government organizations (NGOs) in Azerbaijan have appealed to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Security Council demanding to stop and punish the terrorist state of Armenia, Trend reports citing the appeal.

“We would like to inform you that at around 01 AM on October 17, Armenia once again attacked Ganja, the second largest city of Azerbaijan, firing a SCUD / Elbrus ballistic missile on the densely populated block of the city, killing 13 people and injuring more than 40. Among the dead and injured were the children, women, and elderly people.

This is the third time in the last two weeks that the city of Ganja has come under heavy rocket fire from Armenia, and so far 27 civilians have been killed and more than 100 injured.

The bombing of the Ganja, the city with a population of more than 500,000 people situated far from the conflict zone, without any military necessity by the Armenian political-military leadership, the deliberate and indiscriminate use of powerful destructive missiles such as SCUDs to kill innocent civilians will be included in the history books as the bloodiest war crime committed against humanity in the 21st century.

It is not only this act of savagery, barbarism, and terrorism committed by Armenia in the eyes of the whole world that worries and deeply concerns the Azerbaijani public, it is also seriously infuriated and disturbed by the silence about the human tragedy, genocide, and war crimes committed in Ganja of the UN Security Council, which must stop and punish the aggressors around the globe and was established for this purpose by the world community.

It is clear to everyone that the order to hold deliberate and mass massacre of the civilian population of Ganja was given personally by Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan and Minister of Defense David Tonoyan, and this order was carried out immediately. According to the UN Charter, international law and international humanitarian law, at least Pashinyan and Tonoyan, who issued the order, and other military personnel who carried out this order should be declared the war criminals, and the UN Security Council procedures should be applied to arrest and punish them immediately.

This time, if the UN Security Council again remains silent about the crime committed by Armenia, it will mean the full protection of Armenia, the aggressor, and the murderer of the children, as well as the justification and complicity in the international crimes committed by it. And history will not forgive anyone for this.

Therefore, we, the Azerbaijani NGOs that signed this appeal, urge the UN Security Council to urgently convene and strongly condemn Armenia's crimes against humanity and use its mandate to take appropriate steps to deservedly punish Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Defense Minister David Tonoyan who ordered to bomb the Ganja city, killing a large number of civilians.
