As a result of military aggression by Armenia, Azerbaijan suffered a large number of human losses, and hundreds of cities and villages were destroyed, the head of Azerbaijan’s State Security Service, Colonel-General Ali Nagiyev, said at the international conference on "Increasing national and global efforts to clarify the fate of missing persons".

According to him, in the first Garabagh war, 3,890 people were registered as missing persons in the State Commission: "3,171 of them are servicemen, while 719 are civilians. Among civilians, 71 are minors, 267 are women, and 326 are elderly people.

Naghiyev emphasized that six servicemen went missing during the Patriotic War: "The obtained evidence indicates that a large number of our missing servicemen were killed not on the battlefields, but as a result of terrible torture in internment camps."
