Rights Groups Say Azerbaijan and Armenia Committed War Crimes in Nagorno-Karabakh

HeadlineDec 11, 2020

Azerbaijan’s military held a massive parade in the capital Baku on Thursday, celebrating its victory over Armenian forces in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who backed Azerbaijan in the war, was on hand for the parade, which featured a display of Turkish armed drones. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International report both Azeri and Armenian troops committed war crimes during the six-week conflict — with evidence of extrajudicial executions, beheadings, torture and the desecration of the bodies of slain soldiers.
