Turkey condemns Armenian 'attacks on civilians' in Azerbaijan city
"Armenia's attacks today targeting civilians in Azerbaijan's second-largest city Ganja are a new indicator of its stance that does not recognise law. We condemn those attacks," the Turkish foreign ministry said in a statement.
The fighting over Karabakh, which broke out into renewed fighting seven days ago, intensified on Sunday as Armenian and Azerbaijani forces exchanged rocket fire.
The Turkish foreign ministry accused Armenian forces of "violating all principles of humanitarian law and attacking civilian settlement areas besides the occupied regions, the scene of clashes."
"Those attacks show... Armenia will not hesitate to commit a crime of humanity in order to continue its illegal occupation," the ministry said, branding the country as "the biggest obstacle to peace and stability in the region."
