Eduard Asryan, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Armenia, says that Azerbaijani servicemen have committed a war crime.
On one of the Azerbaijani Telegram channels, a video footage of the sniper of the Armenian Armed Forces with signs of violence on her dead body was published. It is seen that “052 YASHMA” was written on the woman’s body. (052 YASHMA is the Special Forces of Azerbaijani Army)
That video was released in the morning of September 15 and there is no sound in the video.
Today, the Chief of the General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces Eduard Asryan spoke about the footage to the ambassadors and diplomats from 30 countries.
I bring to your attention the brutality committed by the Azerbaijani army against a female soldier. I have photos and videos on my phone. I can show them to you. There are such atrocities that it is impossible to watch. You will see there a woman naked, her finger cut off, her eye gouged out. This is a violation of international law.Eduard Asryan
The video lasts for a minute and 16 seconds.
Although it was possible to enter the Telegram channel that shared the footage without a subscription until the morning of September 16, this has since changed. Currently, the material is only visible to those who subscribe to the channel, and it is shared with a +21 warning.
