An Amnesty International investigation has confirmed the use of banned Israeli-made M095 DPICM cluster munitions against civilians in Nagorno-Karabakh.
The Armenian side, meanwhile, has been publishing video and photo evidence that prove the deployment of cluster munitions. Azerbaijan has been targeting civilian settlements from the very first moments of starting a war along the Karabah line of contact on September 27.
Armenian Defense Ministry representative Artsrun Hovhannisyan has said that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces are using Israeli-made LAR-160 multiple launch rocket systems to fire cluster munitions prohibited by humanitarian law into the civilians settlements of Karabakh.
Sappers are now working to identify unexploded shells and bombs used by Azerbaijan against civilians and render them safe.
Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
