PanARMENIAN.Net – A two-year-old boy named Artsvik who was injured in Azerbaijan’s shelling of the town of Martuni in Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), has been discharged from Surb Astvatsamayr medical center in Yerevan, said Gevorg Derdzyan, a spokesman for the hospital.
Derdzyan revealed on Tuesday, October 2 that the child is feeling “wonderful”, and will be closely watched by doctors for some time.
Artsvik has undergone a surgery on his head, and had sustained injuries to the limbs as well.
Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support humanitarian efforts in Karabakh.
