Armenia trying to convince its internal audience with fairy tales based on new scenarios - MoD
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Nov. 3
As always, the Armenian side is trying to hide its failures and calm the disgruntled Armenian population by means of fairy tales written according to false and exaggerated scenarios, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry told Trend on Nov. 3.
This time, the Armenian side spread another false information about the alleged artillery shelling by the "sabotage group" of the Azerbaijani troops, which suffered losses in the northern direction of the front, and its retreat.
The defense ministry added that this information disseminated by the Armenian side is also complete misinformation and another fantasy of the Armenian Armed Forces.
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. Currently, Azerbaijan continues the liberation of its territories from Armenian troops.
Back in July 2020, the 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, 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.
