YEREVAN (Armenpress)—The preliminary investigation of criminal cases that violated international humanitarian law during the Azerbaijani aggression against Nagorno-Karabakh in early April is underway at the General Military Investigative Department of Armenia, stated the press service of the Investigative Committee.

Under the mediation of the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Personal Representative of the OSCE Chairman-in-Office, the 18 bodies of Armenian soldiers were transferred to the Armenian side on April 10. The external examination of the bodies recorded traces of tortures and vandalism.

Forensic examinations have been appointed to find out the causes of the death of each Armenian soldier.

“By now we have the conclusions of the forensic examinations of 7 soldiers, which prove the violation of international humanitarian law by the Azerbaijani side,” read the press release issued by the investigative committee.

According to “N 0411/20” conclusion documents, a 30-year old Armenian major was beheaded while he was alive. Both wrists of the major were also cut off when he was alive.

According to “N 034/1” and “N 02” conclusion documents, two more Armenian servicemen were beheaded after being killed.

Additional information will be provided after the conclusions of the forensic examinations of the other servicemen are completed.

    And what we do with this information if no one is listening or cares?
    The ax man got rewarded in Azerbaijan and no one moved an eyelash . The international community is closing their eyes when comes to Turkeu or Azerbaijan , so what is the answer for crimes like these committed against Armenian soldiers and civilians ?
    You hit them hard where it hurts in their oil fields and refineries, you be as viciouce as they are, you decapitate their soldiers heads and put them on sticks right at the border, so they can see, we are at war with Mongols and that the only language they understand, like Drakula did in Romania against the Otomans .enough is enough.

    The point is, why isn’t an international agency investigating the violations? What is the purpose of an Armenian investigation, when nobody cares? I say drop a nuclear bomb on Baku and see if there will be a criminal investigation on Armenia…

    This investigation is going no where internationally. Its clear that the major actors give the despot horse face Aliyev a free pass. And since he is friends with the Zionists, OUR TRUE WORST ARMENIAN ENEMY, and who basically made themselves purposely run world media for the last 200 years in order to control the narrative, they will ignore this or make this incident as some sort of parody etc…The way to Aliyev is to cause territorial and financial pain and INTERNAL DOMESTIC PAIN. Arm the army to the teeth and retaliate every time in spades. PREPARE FOR WAR. That’s the ONLY THING these scum bags understand. Next time send their dead azeri filth in parts and pieces and make them put them back together. These people are animals from Mongolia decent. They don’t belong there. They are invaders and squatters pretending their is their ‘ancient lands”. Typical Turks..
