The Armenians began shelling Aghdam village early morning, Zarnishan Gozalova, daughter of Aziz Azizov, resident of Aghdam village who was killed as a result of shelling by the Armenian armed forces, told Trend on July 15.
“About half an hour after talking to my father over phone, the Armenians killed him,” Gozalova added. “Earlier, together with my son, I came to my father’s house and stayed there. When the Armenians made the provocation on July 12, I asked him to go with me, but he refused.”
“My father said that he could not go anywhere as he did not want to leave his house,” Zarnishan noted. “So, we returned home on July 12. We talked to him over the phone in the evening on July 14. My father said that the Armenians were shelling the village again. When we started the conversation, there was a lull, but later during the conversation, the shelling was heard.”
“I said goodbye to my father and asked him to take care of himself,” Gozalova said. “My father told me not to worry. Half an hour later, at about half-past eight, my sister called me and said that my father was not answering the phone calls. Then, we were told that immediately after our phone conversation, the Armenians fired at our house and my father died."
