As a result of a technical error, the TRT Haber TV reported on November 5 that the Azerbaijani military is attacking civilians in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The error occurred when the Turkish-state run news channel was broadcasting a report from the conflict region. It is unclear if the channel apologized for the error.
A technical error was clearly behind the TRT’s report. Nevertheless, the report itself is not false. The Azerbaijani Armed Forces have been shelling civilian settlements in Nagorno-Karabakh since the outbreak of the battle there on September 27.
According to the Armenian Unified Infocenter, Azerbaijani shelling has, thus far, claimed the lives of 50 civilians and injured 148 others.
On November 4 and 5 a number of settlements, some of which located near the cities of Shushi and Stepanakert, were shelled by the Azerbaijani Armed forces with artillery and heavy rockets.
From its side, Azerbaijan claims that Armenian forces are shelling civilian settlements within its territory on a regular basis.
So far, Armenia and Azerbaijan have agreed to three different ceasefires. All collapsed within a few hours. A political settlement for the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh is still apparently far from possible.
