took place as a result of which some Armenian servicemen were killed, some were
saved, while others were captured or subjected to forced disappearance. It
becomes evident from the facts that atrocities were committed against both the
Armenian servicemen who were still alive and those who were killed. There are pictures
which depict servicemen of the Azerbaijani State Border Service cutting off the
ears of the dead Armenian servicemen.
facts confirm that these atrocities were committed by the servicemen of the
Azerbaijani State Border Service. One of the evidences is the fact that in
