YEREVAN, SEPTEMBER 27, ARMENPRESS. Armenian national football team captain and player of the A.S. Roma Henrikh Mkhitaryan condemned the Azerbaijani provocative actions against Artsakh, urging the international community to help stop the military operations.
“I woke up this morning learning about the large scale attack of Azerbaijani army on Nagorno Karabakh targeting civilian population in Stepanakert and surrounding areas.
I call on the international community to urgently stand up and to help stop the military actions against the regional peace and security.
We have an unalienable right to live in our homeland without an existential threat. Our children have the right to live in peace rather than hiding in shelters.
I always stand by my Nation”, Mkhitaryan said on a Facebook post.
On September 27 early morning the Azerbaijani military has launched a massive cross-border artillery attack on Artsakh, including on civilian settlements. Peaceful settlements are also under bombardment, including the capital city of Stepanakert.
The Azerbaijani side suffered losses in its military equipment.
Dozens of civilians in Artsakh were wounded as a result of the Azerbaijani attack. A woman and a child were killed in the Azerbaijani attack.
