Armenia confirms liberation of Gubadli by Azerbaijan
A representative of the Armenian Defense Ministry Artsrun Hovhannisyan confirmed at the briefing that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces liberated the city of Gubadli.
"Yesterday, unfortunately, during fighting late in the evening, Azerbaijan succeeded in seizing Gubadli and advancing in certain directions. Tomorrow we will show those territories more clearly through an interactive map," RIA Novosti cited Hovhannisyan as saying.
The Armenian armed forces committed a large-scale provocation, subjecting the positions of the Azerbaijani army to intensive shelling from large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery installations of various calibers in the front-line zone on Sept. 27 at 05:00 (Msk). The command of the Azerbaijani Army decided to launch a counter-offensive operation of Azerbaijani troops along the entire front to suppress the combat activity of the Armenian armed forces and ensure the safety of the civilian population. To date, Fizuli and Jabrayil districts, including the cities of Jabrayil and Fizuli, the city of Zangilan and part of Zangilan district, part of the Gubaldi region, the city of Gubadli, the city of Hadrut and a number of villages in the Khojavend region, the villages of Sugovushan and Talish in the Terter region, as well as the strategically important Murovdag mountain were liberated.
