BAKU, Azerbaijan, Dec. 24
Anyone visiting the liberated lands can witness the Armenian savagery, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Victorious Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces Ilham Aliyev said during the opening of a military unit in Hadrut settlement of Khojavand district, Trend reports.
"All cities and villages were ruthlessly destroyed by the Armenians. The world can already see this. But look at the town of Hadrut – there is not a single destroyed building here. What does this show? It shows that we have never waged a war against the civilian population. This demonstrates to the world the high moral qualities of our people again," Azerbaijani president said.
"After Hadrut, our road to Shusha was opened. Had Hadrut not been liberated from the invaders, it would have been more difficult to reach Shusha. However, the Shusha operation has already become a saga. The Shusha operation is now being discussed and analyzed in the world's leading military schools, and many, especially those who have been in Shusha, cannot believe that the heroic sons of Azerbaijan climbed those rocks with only light weapons and liberated Shusha, our cultural capital and crown of Karabakh. It was through the Hadrut forests and over the high mountains that we approached Shusha, and the battles for Shusha are no longer a secret," the head of state said.
