President Aliyev: Azerbaijan can destroy any military target in occupied lands

Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 12


In April, Armenia committed yet another armed provocation against Azerbaijan and its people, and Azerbaijan’s army of heroes – soldiers and officers – gave an adequate response to that provocation, said Azerbaijani President, Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev.

“By conducting a successful counterattack operation, the Azerbaijani army inflicted a crushing blow to the enemy and liberated a part of the Azerbaijani lands from the occupation,” President Aliyev said Nov. 12 as he was addressing the soldiers who have distinguished themselves in battles.

“Today we are in the territory of Leletepe. A few months ago this area was under occupation. We ended the occupation,” said the president. “A successful counterattack operation resulted in liberation of more than 2,000 hectares of land that were under occupation in the Fuzuli, Jabrayil and Aghdere districts. Today, the Azerbaijani army fully controls thousands of hectares of land.”

The president also noted that the counteroffensive operation started from disadvantageous positions.

“We liberated the heights, the hills from the occupiers and showed great heroism. The April battles should go into military textbooks,” he said. “The Azerbaijani army demonstrated its professionalism, heroism and skills in those battles.”

“We had martyrs, may Allah rest the souls of all our martyrs. We had wounded soldiers, officers. During a meeting with wounded soldiers and officers at the military hospital, I saw their enthusiasm. They had one wish – to quickly recover and return to the battle zones,” added the president. “This once again shows that the people of Azerbaijan is a great people, Azerbaijani citizens are patriots. Our soldiers and officers are ready to die for the motherland. The April battles are our valiant victory.”

Ilham Aliyev also said the Azerbaijani army showed its strength, adding that Armenia has been for many years inventing lies, myths about its army, alleging that it has an invincible army.

“The April battles showed which army is invincible. The Azerbaijani army is the invincible army. The Azerbaijani army can execute any task. There is no such a military target in the occupied territories and Nagorno-Karabakh that can’t be destroyed by Azerbaijan’s army,” said Ilham Aliyev.

He went on to add that today the Azerbaijani army is among the strongest armies.

“We know this, the people of Azerbaijan and the whole world know this. The Azerbaijani army ranks very high in ratings of strongest armies,” he said.

President Aliyev noted that the combat readiness of Azerbaijan’s army stands at a high level and is rising day by day.

“Discipline and order prevail in our army. Material and technical support of our army is at the highest level,” he said.

Ilham Aliyev reminded that in recent years Azerbaijan has purchased the most modern weaponry and military equipment worth billions of dollars.

“This equipment is based on the latest technologies," he said. “The April battles once again showed that.”

“After the April battles, additional measures have been taken with regard to the material and technical support of our army, funds have been allocated, the most modern weaponry and equipment with high destructive power and precision are being purchased and already stand at our disposal,” said Ilham Aliyev, adding that Azerbaijan’s army, along with fighting abilities, has a high patriotism spirit.

“We are on our lands, it is Azerbaijan. Leletepe, Shusha, Khankendi are also Azerbaijan. We are on our land,” said President Aliyev, adding that Azerbaijan has no claims for others’ lands.

“We will never allow the creation of a second Armenian state on our lands. The April battles once again showed it,” he said.

The president went on to add that a successful operation was conducted in the Fuzuli District in January 1994, and 22 villages were liberated from the occupiers.

“It was a great, historic victory,” noted the president, saying that the April battles are another historic victory.

“The world has once again seen that Azerbaijan will never reconcile with the aggressive policy of Armenia. We must restore and will restore our territorial integrity. This is our ancestral land, our historical land, and we will return to our land, which today is still under occupation,” said the head of state.

He noted that the operation in Leletepe is a symbol of Azerbaijani army’s heroism.

“Leletepe went down in history. If the Armenian armed forces did not draw a right conclusion from the April battles, in the future there will be many successful operations as the Leletepe operation,” said President Aliyev.

“The leadership of Armenia must finally realize that their aggressive actions are leading them to the abyss,” noted the president.

“Azerbaijan is strengthening day by day. We have strong potential and a strong army. We are proud of our army, soldiers and officers, you – our sons standing here face to face with the enemy. Glory to you! Azerbaijan will develop, and we will restore our territorial integrity. Thank you!,” added the head of state.

Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev also gave the relevant instructions.
