“In violation of humanitarian ceasefire and in order to compensate their sustained military losses Armenia resorts to warcrimes of killing civilians. Barda region was attacked with reactive missiles. So far 3 killed, 10 people including kids and women seriously wounded,” Hajiyev tweeted.

Among the killed civilians is a toddler, Hajiyev said. 

"Babykilling policy and warcimres of Armenia's political-military leadershipship continues. Erupted fire is being extinguished by emergency services," Hajiyev said in another tweet.

Armenia has launched a missile on Tartar’s Garayusifli village.

The attack on Barda comes after the US-mediated humanitarian truce that became effective on October 26 at 8 a.m.
