Baku, November 8, AZERTAC
During the day on November 7 and night on November 8, the Armenian armed forces units fired at the positions of the units of the Azerbaijan Army and our residential settlements in various directions of the front with different small arms, howitzers, and mortars, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry told AZERTAC.
According to the ministry, the combat operations continued with varying intensity, mainly in the Aghdara, Aghdam, Khojavand, and Gubadli directions of the front. "During the day, the enemy was seriously hit in the main directions of the front. In some areas of the front, the enemy was forced to retreat, suffering casualties on personnel and military vehicles.
The enemy, who is unable to resist in the front, finds firing at peaceful population and civilian infrastructure as a way out. As a result of artillery shelling of villages of Tartar, Barda, Aghdam, Aghjabadi, and Gubadli districts by Armenian armed forces units last day, some civilians were killed and injured, civilian infrastructure was damaged. The retaliatory actions taken by the Azerbaijan Army were only against legitimate military targets.
During the day, a large number of enemy troops, 4 T-72 tanks, 2 D-20 howitzers, and several military trucks full of ammunition were destroyed and wrecked.
Currently, combat operations are underway. The operational situation is under the control of our troops," the ministry said.
