BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 17. Commissioner for
Human Rights (Ombudsman) of Azerbaijan Sabina Aliyeva issued a
assertion in reference to the damage of an worker of the
National Agency for Mine Action because of a mine explosion in
Jabrayil district [liberated from Armenian occupation in 2020],
According to the assertion, the ombudsman appealed many instances to
the worldwide group in reference to a critical risk,
posed by anti-tank and anti-personnel mines planted by Armenian
armed forces within the beforehand occupied Azerbaijani territories, to
the life and well being of individuals, stressing the need to place to an
finish to such scenario.
The downside of mines within the liberated territories has not solely
delayed the return of internally displaced individuals to their native
lands, but in addition claimed the lives of many individuals, Aliyeva mentioned.

anti-personnel mine. An worker of the National Agency for Mine
Action Rukhin Valiyev was injured by anti-personnel mine when
performing his duties within the liberated Jabrayil district, and was
hospitalized, after dropping a part of his leg within the
blast. Unfortunately, worldwide organizations
don’t take particular measures in relation to mines, which proceed
to pose a possible risk to human life,” she famous.

remind Armenia of its obligation to respect worldwide regulation and
name on worldwide organizations, demonstrating a good strategy
and expressing a agency place, to assist Azerbaijan on this
matter,” added the ombudsman.
