Reports disseminated by AFP news agency exposed -  PHOTO

Since the start of the counter-offensive operations by the Azerbaijani Army, much fake news against our country and misinformation is shared on social networks and mass media outlets.

AFP (Agence France-Presse) news agency published information about the alleged shelling of Khankendi by the Azerbaijani Army.

The news agency published the article together with a photo taken in Barda after the terrorist attack by the Armenian armed forces on 28 October, 2020.

The website presented the photo taken in Barda after the terrorist attack committed by Armenians as if it was taken in Nagorno-Karabakh. However, the photo used in the news material was taken in Barda after the terrorist attack of Armenian Armed Forces on civilian settlements, resulted in the death of 21 civilians.

Later, after numerous complaints and protests from Azerbaijani readers and viewers, the website removed the photo.

Earlier, VOA news passed the image of a city destroyed by Armenia for a city destroyed by Azerbaijan and laid groundless and loud accusations against Azerbaijan. Then quietly apologized for the mistake.
