Azerbaijani Defense Ministry refutes report of alleged shelling of Khankendi

The ‘news’ of Armenian media outlets about alleged shelling of Khankendi city in Nagorno Karabakh is misinformation, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said.

"By spreading such misinformation, Armenian Defense Ministry is trying to divert attention from its country's Armed Forces military crimes," the report said.

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.
