Last night, an Armenian ballistic missile strike hit the Azerbaijani city of Ganja killing and wounding multiple civilians. According to Azerbaijani authorities, 13 civilians were killed and more than 40 others were injured in the attack.
The strike was likely delivered with the Soviet R-17 Elbrus tactical ballistic missile. For example, such missiles are in serivce with forces of the self-proclaimed Armenian Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Republic of Artsakh).
The Armenian Defense Ministry as always denied claim of Aerbaijan and in response accused the Azerbaijani military of striking populated areas inside the Nagorno-Karabakh region, including Stepanakert, the region’s biggest city. Azerbaijani, in own turn, denies that its forces shell any civilian targets also.
