(MENAFN- AzerNews) Another mass grave was discovered in Shusha, proving that people
had been killed and buried en masse in Azerbaijan's liberated
territories during the Armenian occupation, Azernews reports.
According to preliminary information, the remains of at least

on-site investigations conducted in the graves found in Edilli
village of Khojavend district.
The continuous discovery of mass graves in the liberated
territories once again proves the genocide and ethnic cleansing
policy carried out by Armenia against Azerbaijanis. At the same

As the Azerbaijani Ombudswoman, I once again call on the world
community to take necessary measures against Armenia in connection
with such cases, which prove a gross violation of international
legal norms, human rights, and freedoms, and to provide support in
obtaining information about the fate of our missing
