One year has passed since the Armenian Armed Forces launched another missile attack on Azerbaijan’s Gaja city during the Second Karabakh War.
Azerbaijan’s second-largest city was hit by a ballistic missile on October 17, 2020, at around 01.00 am.
Armenia once again targeted civilians in the ancient city of Ganja. 12 people, including 2 children, were killed, and more than 40 were wounded as a result of the rocket attack on apartment buildings. One of the injured later died at the hospital.
During the Second Karabakh War, the Armenian Armed Forces attacked Ganja 5 times (October 4, 5, 8, 11, 17) with rockets and heavy artillery. As a result, 26 people were killed, and 175 others were injured. Civilian infrastructure and vehicles in the city were severely damaged.
