Turkey: Parliament Head Slams Armenian Strike On Civilians

Parliament Speaker Mustafa Sentop denounces attack on Ganja, Azerbaijan's 2nd largest city, which killed 13 civilians.

The head of Turkey's parliament has condemned Armenia's overnight missile attack on Ganja, Azerbaijan's second-largest city, which killed and injured dozens.
"Rogue state" Armenia's attack on the cities of Ganja and Mingachevir again targeted innocent civilians, Parliament Speaker Mustafa Sentop said on Twitter early Saturday.
Sentop called on the international community to condemn Armenia's attacks on civilians.
"Those who still shut their eyes to these war crimes should know that they will be accused under international law of being accomplices," he said.
Thirteen civilians were killed, including two children, and more than 40 others injured, when the Armenian army struck Azerbaijan's second-largest city, Ganja, with missiles.
Relations between the two former Soviet republics have been tense since 1991, when the Armenian military occupied Upper Karabakh, an internationally recognized territory of Azerbaijan.
Since new clashes erupted on Sept. 27, Armenia has continued its attacks on civilians and Azerbaijani forces, who defend the rightful owners of the occupied region.
The OSCE Minsk Group was formed in 1992 to find a peaceful solution to the conflict, but to no avail. A cease-fire was agreed to in 1994. -
