Armenian citizens are holding a protest in front of the government building over Azerbaijan’s aggression in Nagorno Karabakh and demand the resignation of the country’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan, blaming him of failing to take necessary steps to have avoided the escalation in Nagorno Karabakh.
The situation heated up as a scuffle broke out between citizens and police after which the police used stun grenades.
The protesters started throwing bottles at police officers and chanting: "Nikol is a traitor."
"There is no way back, only forward, is that why my brother died, jackals?" one of the protesters shouted.
The head of the Mother Armenia bloc Andranik Tevanyan tried to calm the crowd, but to little avail.
Azerbaijan՛s Armed Forces unleashed a military aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh, use artillery and other heavy weapons as of 1 p.m. on September 19. They attempted to penetrate into the depth of the defense line of the Defense Forces of Nagorno-Karabakh.
