Another military convoy of Armenian armed forces destroyed - MoD

BAKU, Azerbaijan, Nov.7


The Azerbaijan Army Units destroyed another military convoy of the 4th motorized rifle regiment of the 37th rifle division of the Armenian armed forces, Trend reports citing the Ministry of Defense.

A large number of Armenian servicemen were destroyed as a result of the shelling of a military convoy consisting of 3 KamAZs, 2 Urals and 2 IFVs moving from Aghdam to Khankendi. In addition, about 30 servicemen were wounded and military vehicles in the convoy burned off.

Armenian Armed Forces launched a large-scale military attack on positions of 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. Currently, Azerbaijan continues the liberation of its territories from Armenian troops.

Back in July 2020, Armenian Armed Forces violated the ceasefire in the direction of Azerbaijan's Tovuz district. As a result of Azerbaijan's retaliation, the opposing forces were silenced. The fighting continued the following days as well. Azerbaijan lost a number of military personnel members, who died fighting off the attacks of the Armenian Armed Forces.

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.
