Holy Savior Cathedral in Shusha, Nagorno-Karabakh - a disputed territory - was shelled Oct. 8 amid increasing violence in the region.
Artsrun Hovhannisyan, spokesman for Armenia's defense ministry, blamed "enemy Azerbaijan" for the attack, the BBC said.
In Defense of Christians, which advocates for persecuted Christians around the world, affirmed on Friday its opposition to Turkish-backed aggression from Azerbaijan against Armenian Christians.
