Support SouthFront

On October 28, a maternity hospital in Stepanakert city, the capital of the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, was bombed.

Shushan Stepanyan, Press Secretary of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia, said the hospital was targeted by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, which have been leading a large attack on Nagorno-Karabakh for more than a month now. The Press Secretary didn’t provide any addition information on the incident.

Meanwhile, reporters of the Abkhazian Network News Agency, who witnessed the attack, said a warplane dropped four bombs with parachutes at the hospital.

Photos from the strike scene showed heavy destruction as well as the remains of what appears to be a heavy rocket or missile. No human losses have been reported by Armenian sources, so far.

Artsakh authorities said that they are looking into reports indicating that Turkish F-16 fighter jets carried out the attack on Stepanakert maternity hospital

In an official statement, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan rejected the Armenian accusations, describing them as “deliberate misinformation.”

“With this information, the enemy is trying to divert the attention from the war crimes committed in the city of Barda,” the statement reads.

Barda was reportedly shelled by Armenian forces with BM-30 Smerch cluster rockets a few hours before the attack on Stepanakert maternity hospital. Azerbaijani Presidential Aide, Hikmet Hajiyev, claimed that 20 civilians were killed and more than 60 others were injured in the attack.

The bombing of Stepanakert maternity hospital was not the first attack on Armenian health facilities by Azerbaijan. On October 14, Azerbaijani warplanes bombed a military hospital in the Armenian-held town of Martakert.

The Armenian MoD will likely share more details about the attack on Stepanakert maternity hospital in the upcoming few hours and days.

I don’t get it


I think he means Erdogan is no stranger of censorship either :)


Seems the hospital was not in use but in construction gor improvements:


men del

Those maternity hospital they are bragging about is a maternity hospital NOT. Why deceive people like this? I looked at the pictures carefully and it appears that the maternity hospital was nothing but an unfinished construction site. Even the windows hadn’t been installed and not a single room numbers or anything that might suggest it was a hospital appears. Armenians should be more creative if they want to appear like real victims, A BIG HEADLINE but nothing to show for. What a losers!!

John Wallace

Idiot. Didn’t look too hard did you. Go and look at the video with someone talking out front as people pick up broken glass. look at all the windows shattered with rements of glass in the frames from an explosion. Click on the four pictures and scroll down. Check the facts before bullshitting.

men del

the idiot is you. Check that pictures yourself fool!

John Wallace

Nothing dumber than an idiot who can’t understand. I SAID LOOK AT THE VIDEO. Not the picture , the video which shows tons of broken glass everywhere and shattered windows which you can’t see by looking at the picture. Check the VIDEO Moron. As someone else shows the hospital was being refurbished so no patients. Everything you said was bullshit , now get over it. Oh , do LOOK at the VIDEO. No need to apologise for being WRONG .. !!!

The letter, which was spread in the Armenian media, fully clarified the situation in the country and caused a great resonance in society, Qaynarinfo reported citing axar.az. In an appeal titled “Option to get out of the impasse,” Ambartsumyan said in an appeal to Pashinyan that in 2018, the people followed him not because of your services, but because of his sincere protest against the previous government: “They followed you to live in a fairer and more promising world, in a pleasant and bright aura, and I’m sure you believed that too.” I am not a judge and I am not going to evaluate what has happened in the last 2.5 years – the people will evaluate it later. But you can confirm that the whole nation already sees that we are in a desperate situation, in a state of complete crisis. ” Recalling that they were in a difficult situation in 1992, but “won”, Ambartsumyan said that nothing could be done without Russia, so the director of the company suggested that Pashinyan resign immediately and hand over power to someone trusted by Russia. “It is clear that you are not able to solve the serious problems facing Armenia. You must hand over power to a leader who can consolidate the people in a critical situation.” In conclusion, Ambartsumyan noted that he is not involved in politics, but only offers it as a way out of the current impasse. It should be noted that the publication of the letter in the Armenian official media is already accepted as a recognition of the crisis of power and the country’s desperate situation. One of the issues currently being seriously discussed in Armenia is the handover of power by Pashkina to the military. This led to the spread of information about the preparations for a military coup in the army leadership. Nicole Pashina has fired several law enforcement officials, including security officials, in the past two days. It is believed that Pashinyan is very worried about the military coup.

It should be noted that this “fake” was spread to justify the terrorist act committed by Armenia against civilians in the Azerbaijani city of Barda yesterday and today, killing 21 people and injuring 70 as a result of the use of cluster munitions. Kovalenko writes that today Russian and Armenian propagandists began to spread false information about the alleged attack of Azerbaijani and Turkish aircraft on a maternity hospital in Khankendi. Armenians claim that the strikes were carried out by Turkish F-16 fighters on the personal order of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. It is important that this information comes at the same time as the Armenian military strikes on the Azerbaijani city of Barda, which has caused numerous casualties among the civilian population through the Smerch rocket launcher. It is clear that the information about the attack of the F-16s on the maternity hospital in Khankendi was released in the information field to cover up the bloody crime of the Armenian army. However, this fake was as meaningless as many attempts by Russian propagandists. First, I had a dissonance as soon as the first photos appeared, not just baseless allegations about the shooting of a maternity hospital in Khankendi. According to Russian and Armenian sources, when it comes to the blow to the maternity hospital, it comes to mind that women who gave birth in the smoke-filled wards are fleeing in panic. At that moment, we are shown a place that does not have any empty, elementary furniture and seems to be closed for repairs at the moment of collapse. That is, roughly speaking, there was no housing in those buildings. The second and most interesting thing is that we were shown the title of the bomb that was allegedly thrown at the hospital. But the point is that the bombs that survived so well do not have warheads, but we are shown the warheads of the 9M33 guided anti-aircraft missiles used in the TOR-M2KM anti-aircraft missile systems in the arsenal of the Armenian army. Armenian missile defense systems tried to prevent the leak of an unmanned aerial vehicle in the Khankendi airspace and used a guided anti-aircraft missile. It was an anti-aircraft missile that exploded over the hospital building, and its parts fell on the building. The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of a police station. It should be noted that the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry has already reacted to the disinformation spread by the Armenian media. According to the Defense Ministry, the information about the alleged shooting of the maternity hospital in Khankendi by the Azerbaijani army is a deliberate disinformation. In doing so, the enemy is trying to divert attention from the war crime committed in the city of Barda, which caused many casualties.
