Case of 14 Armenian militaries sent to Baku court

The Baku Court of Grave Crimes has accepted the case of 14 Armenian citizens accused of creating an armed grouping, terrorism and illegal crossing of the Azerbaijani border near the village of Gadrut.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on December 15, 2020, Nagorno-Karabakh authorities lost contact with the staff of several Karabakh military posts stationed in the area of the villages of Khtsaberd (the Azerbaijani name of Chailakkala) and Khin Takher (Kyokhne Taglar). On December 16, residents of the Shirak Region of Armenia blocked the Gyumri-Yerevan highway, stating that dozens of their fellow countrymen had been captured in the Gadrut District. According to the data of the Karabakh Ombudsperson, about 60 soldiers were captured in the vicinity of Khtsaberd village.

According to Azerbaijani investigators, a group of Armenian residents acquired weapons and ammunition and created an armed grouping. On November 26-27, 2020, they crossed the Azerbaijani border and took up combat positions in the forest of Gadrut village of the Khodjavend District. Until December 13, these residents of Armenia committed armed attacks on enterprises and institutions in Azerbaijan. The grouping also attacked people, made explosions and fires, the “Trend.az” quotes the investigators’ version.
