Siege of Stepanakert –
preceding the Khojaly-related tragedy
The capital of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic and its Armenian population was a target of a months-long campaign of indiscriminate bombardment by Azerbaijan. The bombardment of Stepanakert and adjacent Armenian towns and villages took place during a total blockade by Azerbaijan and caused mass hunger, widespread destruction and killed or maimed hundreds of civilians. Human Rights Watch reported that the main bases used by Azerbaijani Armed Forces for the bombardment of Stepanakert included the towns of Khojaly and Shusha.
