The intentional targeting of civilian targets by Azeri forces, including the historic Ghazanchetsots Cathedral, is abhorrent and deserves international condemnation, Rep. Frank Pallone said in a Twitter post.
“I am saddened by this news after having the pleasure of visiting this treasure last year,” the lawmaker said. He aloo attaches a photo in front of the cathedral.
The historic Armenian church was seriously damaged in airstrikes from the Azerbaijani side.
Three journalists were wounded in a repeated attack on the church. One of them is in serious condition and is undergoing a surgery.
