BAKU, Azerbaijan, Sept.29
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
Azerbaijani community of Azerbaijan's Nagorno- Karabakh region sent an appeal to international organizations in connection with the military-political crimes of the Armenian armed forces on the line of contact, Trend reports citing the community.
The community pointed out that on the line of contact with the occupied territories of Azerbaijan, civilians are being shelled, which resulted in casualties among civilians, destruction of houses and apartment buildings. Private farms of the Azerbaijani civilian population also suffered from the shelling of the Armenian armed forces.
The Azerbaijani community of the Nagorno-Karabakh region, guided by the documents adopted by authoritative international organizations for the settlement of the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, emphasized that Armenia hasn’t created conditions for the implementation of these documents.
The community appealed to international organizations not to turn a blind eye to the military-political crimes committed by Armenia on the line of contact, stating that inaction from the organizations damages their reputation.
The Armenian armed forces committed a large-scale provocation, subjecting the positions of the Azerbaijani army to intensive shelling from large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery installations of various calibers in the front-line zone on Sept. 27 at 06:00 (GMT+4).
The command of the Azerbaijani Army decided to launch a counter-offensive operation of Azerbaijani troops along the entire front to suppress the combat activity of the Armenian armed forces and ensure the safety of the civilian population.
Ashagi Abdurrahmanli, Garakhanbeyli, Garvend, Kend Horadiz, Yukhari Abdulrahmanli villages of Fizuli district, Boyuk Marjanli, and Nuzgar villages of Jabrayil district were liberated.
Moreover, the positions of the Armenian armed forces were destroyed in the direction of the Agdere district and Murovdag, important heights were taken under control.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on the withdrawal of its armed forces from Nagorno Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
