The Azerbaijani Army has liberated more villages in Jabrayil, Zangilan and Gubadli regions, President Ilham Aliyev announced on his Twitter account on November 2.
"Victorious Armed Forces of Azerbaijan have liberated Chaprand, Haji Isaqli and Gosha Bulag villages of Jabrayil, Dere Giletag and Boyuk Giletag villages of Zangilan, Ishigli, Muradkhanli and Milanli villages of Gubadli. Long live Azerbaijan's Army! Karabakh is Azerbaijan!," the president’s Tweet reads.
Earlier at his meeting with the visiting former Turkish prime minister, Binali Yildirim, on November 2, President Aliyev pledged to make public the names of newly-liberated villages.
Armenian armed forces launched a large-scale operation in the front-line zone on September 27 at 6 am, shelling the positions of the Azerbaijani army from large-calibre weapons, mortars, and artillery installations of various calibres. Armenia has been targeting Azerbaijan’s densely populated areas and infrastructure projects.
Armenia launched missile attacks on Azerbaijani cities and regions - Ganja, Barda, Mingachevir, Khizi, Absheron, Tartar, Gabala, Kurdamir, Siyazan, Goranboy, Aghdam among others.
Azerbaijan and Armenia are locked in a conflict over Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh breakaway region, which along with seven adjacent regions was occupied by Armenian forces in a war in the early 1990s. More than 20,000 Azerbaijanis were killed and around one million were displaced as a result of the large-scale hostilities.
