Armenia's “heroic return” of lost positions is fantasy, says Azerbaijani MoD
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 7
The fantasies of the Armenian defense ministry’s officials are not ending, Trend reports on Oct. 7 referring to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.
Armenian officials, having got themselves into a desperate situation due to the failures of the aggressor army, find consolation in the spreading of false information.
In fact, the spreading of disinformation by the representative of the ministry about the "heroic return" of any position confirms the loss of these positions by the Armenian army.
The dissemination of different and contradictory information by the so-called regime and officials of Armenia once again proves how deplorable the situation of the Armenian armed forces is today.
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 launched missile attacks on Azerbaijani cities of Ganja, Mingachevir, Khizi as well as Absheron district.
On October 6th, at about 9 pm (GMT+4), Armenian Armed Forces launched missiles at the Azerbaijani Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, the largest strategic project in the region, which plays an important role in Europe's energy security. Azerbaijani army was able to disable the missiles in the air, so no damage was done to the pipeline.
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.
