Prosecutor General: Landmines kill 14 since ceasefire

Landmines continue to be a problem in the territories now under Azerbaijani control since the ceasefire.

Azerbaijan's Prosecutor General's Office has released a statement detailing the deaths and injuries caused by landmines since the war ended.

According to the statement, five military personnel and nine civilians had been killed by landmines since 10 November. A further 52 servicemen and 8 civilians were injured.

The Prosecutor General's Office has prohibited civilians from entering the territories newly under Azerbaijani territory due to the danger of mines.

Just two weeks ago, the head of a mine cleaning unit was seriously injured by an exploding mine.

We invest considerable time, effort and resources to do so, which is why we need your help.

Your support empowers our courageous journalists, many of whom work at great personal risk to freedom and safety. Every contribution to the protection of independent journalism in Azerbaijan matters. Thank you.
