Today, the Azerbaijani Army is restoring its territorial integrity. The operation continues successfully. One city and many villages have already been liberated. That shows once again that the Azerbaijani people will never reconcile with the occupation. We have said many times: Karabakh is our historical, ancient land! Unfortunately, long-term discussions did not yield a result. In this case, of course, Azerbaijan had to restore its territorial integrity on its own, and it is doing so. “
Report informs, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in an interview with CNN-Turk TV.
The head of state also stressed that the Armenian side fired on Azerbaijani settlements and civilians: “Many of our cities and villages are under fire. To date, we have about 30 casualties and martyrs among civilians—Armenian armed forces fire on our towns and villages. About a thousand houses are either destroyed or severely damaged. However, everything is going according to plan, and I hope that the tasks will be fulfilled.”
