Azerbaijan Hit Armenian Military Hospital Claiming It Was Ammo Depot

Support SouthFront

On October 17, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan released a video of recent airstrikes on the Armenian-held town of Martakert in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

In an official statement, the ministry claimed that the airstrikes hit fuel and ammunition depots of Armenian forces. Nevertheless, photos from the ground revealed that the target was a military hospital.

According to a report by the France-Press Agency, Azerbaijani airstrikes hit Martakert’s military hospital on October 14. Sources there told the agency that the airstrikes hit just as some wounded service members were arriving from the frontlines some 10 km away.

The Azerbaijani airstrikes wounded many people inside the hospital. A number of nearby civilian houses were also damaged as a result of the airstrikes.

The airstrikes may have been carried out by Su-25 warplanes of the Azerbaijani Air Force, which are known to be active over Nagorno-Karabakh.

The aerial attack on Martakert’s military hospital amounts to a war crime. The Azerbaijani MoD’s video confirms Baku responsibility for the attack. The motives of the attack remain unclear.

That violates multiple points of the Geneva Conventions.
Both sides are losing the moral highground.

Yes but Armenia did the same in the 1990s.

Theoretically correct but If the medical or religious facilities or equipment are being used for military purposes they lose their protection but only after warning has been given which gives the offenders a reasonable amount of time in which to respond and after such warnings are ignored or remain unheeded. Tons of propaganda and the situation is there like ”up is down and black is white” so we cant know the exact truth.Perfect ground for Fait Accompli…

Armenians are truly terorists just like Kurds and Palestians(may Jehovah curse them) Armos bombs civilian apartment complexes with ballistic missiles(13 civilains are dead) also uses hospitals as bunkers and patients as human shileds.

never have believed azeri claims—if they were to reveal the truth their own population would revolt

I’ve said it multiple times and I will say it once again. Armenians must bomb all SOCAR facilities and infrastructure related to them. I am sure Iran can provide the right material for this. Bombing random neighbors without any strategic value is pointless .

The explosion did not look like a hospital. Azerbaijan has indeed attacked Armenian fuel and ammunition depots.. I guess so.
