Azerbaijani army captures and destroys numerous military equipment of Armenia (VIDEO)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 9
The Azerbaijani army destroyed a lot of Armenia’s military equipment by shelling the positions of the Armenian armed forces in important directions, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry told Trend on Oct. 9.
The Azerbaijani armed forces captured several more combat-ready armored vehicles left on the battlefield by Armenian armed forces.
The Azerbaijani army continues to make precise strikes against military targets and military equipment of the Armenian armed forces.
Armenian Armed Forces launched a large-scale military attack on positions of the Azerbaijani army on the front line, using large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery on Sept. 27.
Azerbaijan responded with a counter-offensive along the entire front. As a result of retaliation, Azerbaijani troops liberated a number of territories previously occupied by Armenia, as well as take important, strategic heights under control.
The fighting continued into October 2020, in the early days of which Armenia has launched missile attacks on Azerbaijani cities of Ganja, Mingachevir, Khizi as well as Absheron district.
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.
