Armenia is Now a Global Issue: Turkish Parliament Speaker

ANKARA – The Turkish parliament speaker, Mustafa Sentop, on Sunday criticized attacks violating Armenia’s truce against Azerbaijani settlements.
“These attacks are a war crime because they directly target civilians,” Mustafa Sentop said on Twitter, calling for a trial.
“Armenia is now a global problem,” Sentop said.
An Armenian missile attack struck Azerbaijan’s second-largest city, Ganja, violating a temporary ceasefire, at 2 a.m. local time on Sunday.
Armenia’s attacks continued despite a humanitarian truce agreed on Saturday for the exchange of prisoners and the recovery of bodies in Nagorno-Karabakh, or in Nagorno-Karabakh, an internationally recognized territory of Azerbaijan.
The truce came after a trilateral meeting in Moscow on Friday between the foreign ministers of Russia, Azerbaijan and Armenia.
Since the start of the clashes on September 27, as many as 41 Azerbaijani civilians have been killed and more than 200 injured.
Some 1,165 houses, 57 residential and commercial buildings and 146 public buildings were also destroyed or damaged, Azerbaijani officials said.
Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said its army repelled attacks from Armenia throughout the night.
Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay also criticized the attacks by Armenia, who took to Twitter to say that “Armenia is committing a crime against humanity targeting civilians even though it has not even been 24 hours that the ceasefire has entered into force.”
He criticized the international community for its ignorance.
“By ignoring this hypocritical attitude, the international community becomes a party to the crime,” Oktay said.
Four United Nations Security Council resolutions and two United Nations General Assembly resolutions, as well as many international organizations, call for the withdrawal of the occupying forces.
