Azerbaijani Armed Forces have destroyed a sabotage group of the Armenian Armed Forces, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry reported on March 2.
On the night of March 2, sabotage and reconnaissance group of the Armenian Armed Forces tried to attack the Azerbaijani positions in the Aghdere-Terter direction of the frontline.
As a result of an armed clash, Armenian side suffered losses, and was forced to retreat. The Azerbaijani side suffered no losses.
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, in 1992 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 withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
