PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan has committed more war crimes, killing captured Armenian servicemen again. A video spreaded by Azerbaijani social media users shows the bodies of 19 Armenian servicemen. Some of them are naked, at least four of them have their hands tied behind their backs.

'It is clear that the handcuffed soldiers were war prisoners before being killed. Azerbaijan continues to ignore the norms of international humanitarian law and commit new war crimes,' the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) Human Rights Defender reports.

The Azerbaijanis earlier filmed their torture and brutal murder of two Armenian prisoners of war, one of them a civilian. In another video published by Twitter users, an Azerbaijani soldier is seen using a handgun to shoot a wounded Armenian serviceman in the head at close range.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
