ArmInfo.At the end of last week, Israel handed over humanitarian aid to Azerbaijan for citizens who suffered during the hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone. This is reported by vesty.co.il with a link to Ynet.
"The Azerbaijani side appealed to Israel with a request for humanitarian and medical assistance to help dozens of citizens who suffered during the shelling of the city of Ganja, the second largest city in this country. Israel agreed to provide humanitarian aid, including essential items for those left homeless: heating devices, warm clothes, first-aid kits, etc. In addition, medical equipment was delivered. It is possible that
Israel will send additional assistance if requested, " the newspaper notes.
At the same time, it is reported that about two weeks ago, Israel offered humanitarian aid to Armenia, but the Armenian side has not yet responded to this proposal.
It also emphasizes that humanitarian assistance is provided exclusively to the civilian population, and not to participants in hostilities. The source also recalls that Israel has been selling weapons and other military equipment to Azerbaijan for a long time, and that supplies continue even now, when the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh are gaining strength.
To recall, in early October, Armenia recalled its Ambassador from Tel Aviv to Yerevan for consultations against the backdrop of ongoing arms supplies to Azerbaijan. The Armenian Foreign Ministry called this behavior of Israel unacceptable, calling for an end to the supply of weapons to Azerbaijan, which are used against civilians. The Israeli Foreign Ministry expressed regret over the fact that Yerevan decided to recall its Ambassador. In turn, the President of Nagorno-Karabakh Arayik Harutyunyan accused Israel of complicity in the genocide, which, according to him, is being carried out against the Armenian people in Karabakh.
