Azerbaijani social media users uncover another Armenian disinformation - PHOTOFACT
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 30
Azerbaijani social media users have uncovered another disinformation material, Trend reports.
The well-known Yahoo website posted an article entitled ‘The Karabakh city suffered from the strongest shelling in a month of fighting’. The article presented the terrorist act committed by Armenian Armed Forces in Azerbaijani Barda city as ‘the bombing of Karabakh’. So, the photo added to the news was taken on October 28 during the bloody terror in Barda.
As a result of the activity of Azerbaijanis in social networks, as well as their complaints addressed to Yahoo, the site changed this photo.
The news can be found by linking to:
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, the 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.
