Armenian Defense Ministry: Consequences will Fall on the Shoulders of Azerbaijani Military Leadership

Eighty-three year old Parakavar resident Baydzar Aghajanyan and Berdavan residents Shushan Asatryan, 94, and Sona Revezyan , 41, were killed by Azerbaijani artillery fire earlier today, targeting Armenian border villages in Armenias Tavush province. Two male residents of Berdavan were also wounded in an attack on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, according to Paravakar Mayor Roland Margaryan speaking to RFE/RLs Armenian Service Azatutyun.am.

“The Republic of Armenia urges the Azerbaijani civilian population on the border areas to refrain from becoming a human shield for the military of Azerbaijan, read a statement released by the Armenian Ministry of Defense, stressing that Armenian military forces will take necessary measures to stabilize the situation, the consequences of which will be on the shoulders of Azerbaijani military leadership.

“The leadership of Azerbaijan disregards all the peace initiatives regarding the Nagorno-Karabagh conflict resolution, read the press statement, which confirms that there were civilian casualties, says that the Armenian villages on the border have been under heavy artillery shelling by Azerbaijani gunfire.

“The Armenian Ministry of Defense declares that the evolving situation is a result of the sly policies of Azerbaijani political-military leadership and is clearly in breach of the peace initiatives of the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairmanship, the statement reads.

Meanwhile, James Warlick, the U.S. Co-Chairman of the OSCE Minsk Group, said that the OSCE Co-Chairs were in touch with officials in Armenia and Azerbaijan about renewed violence, and urged an end to attacks and reprisals, in a tweet.

In recent weeks, Azerbaijani attacks on border villages have intensified. In early September, Azerbaijani forces launched long-range rocket attacks on several border villages in Armenias Tavush province. As a result of the rocket attacks, two residents of Kotione of about 20 villages that were attacked in the areawere wounded and hospitalized. The 43-year-old woman and her 23-year-old son were rushed to a Noyemberyan hospital.

In early September, two Armenian servicemen were killed during attacks on Armenian positions by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, reported the Nagorno-Karabagh Republic (NKR) Ministry of Defense. Marat Khachanyan and Arman Stepanyan of the NKR Defense Army were killed during a raid by the Azerbaijani army.

A day earlier, an Armenian serviceman was killed and two were injured as a result of heavy caliber fire from Azerbaijani positions near border villages in northeastern Armenia, reported the press office of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia on Sept. 3. The attack took place a day following celebrations of the 24thanniversary of the independence of the NKR. Armenian contract serviceman Hayk Karleni Devoyan suffered a fatal shot to the neck during the Azerbaijani offensive. He was 40 years old and had been serving in the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia since 2010.

This week, the Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) launched an action alert, asking community members to urge their representatives to sign a letter drafted byChairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) and Ranking Democrat Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, and join a bipartisan call for renewed U.S. leadership in keeping the peace along the Nagorno-Karabagh line of contact.

The two senior legislators are currently collecting Congressional signatures on a letter addressed to Ambassador James Warlickthe U.S. representative to the OSCEs Minsk Group tasked with reaching a resolution of Nagorno-Karabagh related security and status issues.
