"The Commissioner for Human Rights Sabina Aliyeva has repeatedly addressed the international community with statements and calls to put an end to the situation posed a serious threat to human life and health by tanks and anti-personnel mines buried by Armenia during the occupation of the liberated territories of Azerbaijan.
The landmine problem in our liberated areas has not only delayed the return of IDPs to their homes, but has also claimed the lives of many people or given them lifelong disabilities.
APA reports that the press service of the Ombudsman's Office said.
It was noted that another Azerbaijani civilian was injured by an anti-personnel mine: “Ruhin Sultan oglu Veliyev, an employee of the Azerbaijan Mine Action Agency (ANAMA), was hit by a mine while on duty in the liberated Jabrayil region and his left leg was traumatically amputated.
Unfortunately, international organizations do not take concrete action on landmines, which remain a potential threat to human life, resulting in the death or injury of innocent people.
"As the Ombudsman of Azerbaijan, I once again express my serious concern over the threat posed by landmines, remind Armenia of its obligation to respect international law, and call on international organizations to show support for Azerbaijan in this matter by taking a fair approach."
