Azerbaijani MP Arzu Naghiyev visited settlements that were intensively shot as a result of a provocation by the Armenian armed forces.
Since yesterday night, it is relatively quiet in the district’s territory, the MP told Trend on July 15.
"Now I’m in Tovuz, the district's city center. Recently I have visited the villages of Dondar Gushchu and Aghdam, shelled by Armenian armed forces. The village of Aghdam is located near the height of Garagaya. I met with the residents as well as with journalists who came here. On the past night, large-caliber machine guns did not fire, there were no shell explosions, except for the periodical sounds of machine-gun bursts. After the past three days, only today it was relatively calm."
The MP added that on July 14, he participated in the funeral of military personnel who died heroically as a result of the Armenian provocation. He expressed condolences to the families of the dead and wished the speedy recovery to the wounded people.
"The most important thing is that the Azerbaijani army fully controls the situation, and the provocation of the Armenian soldiers has been suppressed. They tried to scare and expel the civilians from their homes by artillery shelling, but failed to do so. All Tovuz residents believe in the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and the Azerbaijani army and support them. The population is not discouraged. Residents of both villages are engaged in their daily activities."
Naghiyev added that some persons disseminate information of a provocative nature on the social networks.
"Let no one believe this information, since it has nothing to do with reality. The Azerbaijani army is fulfilling their duties with high professionalism," the MP stressed.
