ArmInfo. The stoning of a civilian car in Syunik by the Azerbaijani military confirms the urgent need to create a security zone. This statement was made by Armenian human rights defender Arman Tatoyan in response to earlier media reports that the Azerbaijani military threw stones at a civilian car with Armenian license plates on the David Bek-Shurnukh road section of the Kapan-Yerevan interstate highway.
At the same time, he informed that immediately after the publication of the information, he initiated the work on collecting facts with the involvement of the Syunik division of the Defender's office. "As part of this work, the study of the area between the villages of David Bek-Shurnukh confirmed that Azerbaijani troops were stationed at this place. The information about the incident was confirmed to the Human Rights Defender by the head of the Kapan community, noting that it was a civilian car with passengers and an Armenian license plate, " Tatoyan said.
In this regard, the Armenian Ombudsman expressed his conviction that the incident is a clear evidence of the existence of a real threat to the rights of citizens of the Republic of Armenia, enshrined in the Constitution and recognized at the international level. According to him, this applies to the rights of people to life, physical and mental integrity, property and other vital issues. "The information about this incident clearly substantiates the concept of the Human Rights Defender that there should be a security zone in Syunik to guarantee the rights of Armenian citizens.
There should be no Azerbaijani soldiers, signs or flags on the roads near the villages of the Syunik region and between the communities. The Human Rights Defender will send information about this incident to international structures, as well as include it in the concept of the security zone, " Tatoyan said in a statement.
