From November 6 to 12, the Azerbaijan Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) cleared 527.6 hectares of mines and unexploded ordnance in the liberated territories, Azernews reports, citing the agency.

According to the information provided by the agency, 12 anti-personnel mines, 129 anti-tank mines, and 317 unexploded live ammunition were found as a result of operations conducted in Tartar, Aghdam, Lachin, Shusha, Khojavand, Fuzuli, Gubadli, Jabrail, and Zangilan districts.

The impact of mines is devastating; people die or remain disabled for life.
