The Azerbaijani Armed Forces continue counter-offensive operations against Armenia, Spokesman for the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense Anar Eyvazov said, Trend reports.
He pointed out that the Armenian army shelled the settlements in the Dashkasan district of Azerbaijan.
"Following the counter-attack of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, a large number of manpower and equipment of the Armenian armed forces were destroyed. The Armenian army continues to fire at the settlements of the Dashkasan district, in response to which adequate measures will be taken,” Eyvazov added.
“The Azerbaijani army continues its counter-offensive operation. As a result of the counter-offensive of the Azerbaijani army, firing points and other military installations of the Armenian army were destroyed. All provocations of the Armenian subdivisions are suppressed. In the direction of Agdere district, heavy blows were inflicted on the units of the Armenian army, under which it was forced to retreat. During the redeployment in the Aghdara direction, one tank and one military vehicle were destroyed. By the precise fire in the Fizuli district, 4 tanks, and the third Martuni motorized rifle regiment, were destroyed. The Armenians appealed to the population to help with vehicles to take the bodies of the dead,” said the ministry’s spokesman.
“The military propaganda machine of Armenia, which fell into a hopeless position by the successful military operations of the Azerbaijani army, began large-scale provocations in the information space. Thus, the Armenian side, as always, presents old materials from past battles as new ones, and its failures as success. The offensive of the Azerbaijani army continues in the morning to liberate the city of Fizuli. Victory is with us!” the ministry added.
