Armenia Used Cluster Bombs In Deadly Barda Attack : Azerbaijan

Azerbaijan has accused Armenia of using cluster munitions in two days of attacks, killing at least 25 people and wounding dozens in Barda, Eastern Azerbaijan, near Nagorno-Karabakh.

Strike marked the deadliest reported attack on civilians in a month of fighting over Nagorno-Karabakh.

Barda MP Zahid Oruj said that Armenia was attempting to “create scenes similar to Syria and Libya, with people’s blood shed in the streets”.

Azerbaijani Presidential aide Hikmet Hajiyev said Armenian Forces had fired Smerch Missiles on Barda.

While security measures were tightened against a possible second attack in the city, many businesses, including all Cafes and Restaurants, were closed.
