Territory of 15,900 square meters has been completely cleared in Jojug Marjanli village of Jabrayil region, Azerbaijan’s National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) told Trend on December 12.
"During the past day, an area of 15,900 square meters was completely cleared in the village," the message says.
Currently, ANAMA continues clearing of Jojug Marjanli from mines and UXOs.
The Agency was established in 1998 for planning and coordination, management and monitoring of mine action related activities all over the country.
The problem of unexploded ordnance in Azerbaijan can be divided into the areas that are still under the occupation of Armenian forces and other areas of the country. Most of the unexploded ordinances are the result of Armenian aggression.
Jojug Marjanli village was liberated by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces from the Armenian occupation in April 2016. In late January 2017, President Ilham Aliyev ordered to restore the village. ANAMA professionals carry out the operation in the village with the aim to ensure full security for its residents.
