At present, Armenian star Mkhitaryan has posted through his social media that he hopes to seek the international community to stop the war on Armenian territory.
Mkhitaryan said: “We continue to witness the fierce military aggression by the Azerbaijani army against the Naka region. They are bombing the capital Stepanakert and civilian infrastructure. The territory of the Republic of Armenia is being bombed. Azerbaijan’s missiles are attacking. Local and foreign news agencies."
"People in the Naka region are fighting international terrorism. Armenia’s country is being threatened, and global peace and security are also threatened. If it is not stopped today, it may spread from this region to other regions tomorrow. Today our children are suffering When it comes to the attack, it may be yours tomorrow!"
"We once again urge the international community to do everything possible to stop Azerbaijan’s military actions against Armenians and acts that endanger global peace."
The Naka region is located in the South Caucasus. The area of Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Region is approximately 4,400 square kilometers. During the Soviet period, Naka was an autonomous prefecture in southwest Azerbaijan, and most of its residents were Armenians. Dissatisfied with the local economy and living conditions, the Armenians in the Naka region have been seeking to incorporate Naka into Armenia.
On September 27, 2020, Armenia and Azerbaijan broke out in a military conflict in the Naka region. The incident has caused at least 23 deaths and hundreds of injuries. The President of Azerbaijan stated that civilians were injured or killed in the incident.
