  • Armenia continuously violated ceasefire on the state border
  • The Armenian armed forces shelled Tartar, Aghjabadi, Goranboy, Aghdam, Tovuz and Aghstafa Districts
  • The Armenian armed forces fired at Azerbaijan’s Fuzuli District, using Smerch multiple-launch missile system
  • Liberation of several villages & destruction of dozens of Armenian military equipment
  • Captain of the Armenian armed forces Ando Grigoryan was killed while driving UAZ. The commander of the Armenian armed forces’ motorized infantry regiment and the commander of the tank battalion were killed
  • A person injured as a result of Armenian aggression died in Barda. The number of Azerbaijani civilians killed as a result of the Armenian aggression reached 92. A 16-year-old teenager was killed in an Armenian missile attack on Barda.

On September 27, 2020, in response to a large-scale provocation of the Armenian armed forces along the frontline, the Azerbaijani army launched a counter-offensive operation, later dubbed Iron Fist.

The 44-day-war put an end to the nearly 30-year-long occupation and secured the liberation of Azerbaijani lands and the restoration of the country's territorial integrity.

The Azerbaijani army declared a victory against the Armenian troops. A Moscow-brokered ceasefire deal from November 10, 2020, stipulated the return of Azerbaijan's Armenian-occupied Kalbajar, Aghdam, and Lachin Districts and obliged Armenia to withdraw its troops from the Azerbaijani lands that it has occupied since the early 1990s. Before the signing of the deal, the Azerbaijani army liberated around 300 villages, settlements, city centers, and the historical Shusha city.

Here’s how the sixth week of the war played out:
