Thirteen civilians were killed as more than 40 others were injured in Armenia's missile attack on Azerbaijan's second-largest city, Ganja.
The attack destroyed a multi-story resident building.
Armenia continues to commit "war crimes" in Azerbaijan, killing civilians, including children, Turkey's top diplomat said.
"Silence in face of savagery means complicity in murder. Those who do not claim their share of humanity will be held accountable for their crimes," Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Twitter.
History will never forgive those who remain silent about Armenia's brutality and war crimes against Azerbaijani civilians, Turkey's defense minister said.

In a statement, the ministry said the Su-25 aircraft was attempting to launch air strikes on Azerbaijani positions in the Jabrayil region.

"Azerbaijan's glorious Army has liberated the villages of Gochehmedli, Chimen, Chuvarli, Pirehmedli, Musabeyli, Ishigli, and Dedeli of the Fuzuli district and the city of Fuzuli," President Ilham Aliyev said on Twitter.
A new temporary humanitarian cease-fire reached between Azerbaijan and Armenia entered into force midnight local time (2000 GMT) Sunday.
