Azerbaijani army destroys missile-artillery warehouse of Armenian Armed Forces - MoD (VIDEO)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Oct. 30
Armenian media has spread another false information about the alleged destruction of an ammunition depot belonging to the Azerbaijani army, Trend reports citing the Ministry of Defense.
According to the ministry, meanwhile, the Armenian side once again exposed its falsification by adding a recorded video of the depot from a close distance.
"In fact, on the night of October 29, units of Azerbaijani army destroyed the missile-artillery depot of Armenian Armed Forces newly built in the occupied territory," clarified the ministry.
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.
