Last night there was a gruesome video of Azerbaijani soldiers executing several Armenian prisoners of war at close range, Jean-Christophe Busson, deputy director of the French magazine Le Figaro, wrote on his Twitter.
"A gruesome video was received last night showing Azerbaijani soldiers executing several Armenian prisoners of war at close range. This video of new war crimes by Azerbaijan is being verified (by international media and bodies)," Busson wrote.
A gruesome video of the execution of four unarmed Armenian prisoners of war by Azerbaijani soldiers is circulating in Telegram channels.
Earlier, EU Special Representative for the South Caucasus and the crisis in Georgia Toivo Klaar said that if it is proven that the video is genuine, it is a war crime that must be investigated and the perpetrators punished.
On September 28, starting from 18:00 the Azerbaijani Armed Forces started firing mortars and large-caliber small arms at the Armenian positions in the eastern direction of the border. The Armenian side resorted to retaliatory actions.
Later, the Ministry of Defense reported that as of 10 p.m. the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border was relatively stable. As a result of the Azerbaijani provocation, three Armenian servicemen were killed.
