The death toll of an Armenian missile strike on Azerbaijan's second-largest city of Ganja has reached 10, local authorities announced Monday.


Azerbaijan's Chief Public Prosecutor's Office said in a statement that one more civilian had succumbed to their wounds following the attack at around 2.00 a.m. local time on Sunday (2200GMT Saturday) that violated a tentative cease-fire between the two sides.

"We deeply regret to inform that on October 12th, one of the wounded, Aliyeva Gunay Zahid, born in 1992, died at the hospital where she was receiving treatment. At present, other wounded civilians are receiving in-patient treatment," said the written statement.

As a result of rockets fired at apartment buildings in the central part of the city, over 10 apartment buildings and more than 100 facilities were "extensively damaged."

Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev vowed a "befitting retaliation" against Armenia's attacks, noting that the recent attack was a "war crime" and a "gross violation" of the Geneva Conventions.
