President Ilham Aliyev signed a relevant decree on martial law on September 27 after Armenia launched an attack on Azerbaijan’s army positions and civilians along the entire line of contact. According to the decree, the martial law was declared due to Armenia’s regular military provocations and due to the occupation of Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh region and the surrounding districts.
During the martial law, curfew shall be introduced from 21:00 to 06:00 in Baku, Ganja, Sumgayit, Yevlakh, Mingachevir, Naftalan, Absheron, Jabrayil, Fuzuli, Aghjabadi, Beylagan, Aghdam, Barda, Tartar, Goranboy, Goygol, Dashkasan, Gadabay, Tovuz, Shamkir, Gazakh and Aghstafa.
The curfew prohibits persons from being on the street and in other public places without special permits and identity documents. It also implies the application of a special entry-exit regime and taking measures to restrict the movement of vehicles.
Seven Azerbaijani villages and strategic positions and the Murov peak in the Murov mountain were liberated in the Azerbaijani army’s counter-strike on September 27.
