Armenian forces have targeted residential areas in Azerbaijan’s second-largest city of Ganja, away from the flashpoint and occupied Karabakh region, as fighting entered eighth straight day. 

Azerbaijan’s Defence Ministry said Armenian armed forces shelled Ganja, a city of more than 500,000 residents in western Azerbaijan, killing one civilian wounding at least four others. 

Baku said Ganja was under fire, including from areas outside of Karabakh, adding that Armenian shelling was “provocative and expands the zone of hostilities.”
