“Recent aggressive statements of #Azerbaijan'i leadership, large-scale joint mil exercises w/#Turkey, as well as rejection of OSCE PRCiO monitoring requests clearly indicate this aggression was pre-planned and constitutes large-scale provocation against regional peace & security,” he tweeted.

In the early morning of September 27, the Azerbaijani military launched a massive attack on Artsakh using air force, missiles and tanks.  The Azerbaijani artillery strikes targeted civilian settlements, including Stepanakert city, which resulted in several civilians being killed.
