Azerbaijani army destroys command post of occupants in Karabakh (VIDEO)
Azerbaijani Armed Forces have destroyed two military sites of the Armenian Armed Forces, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said.
They destroyed a protected command-and-observation post and optical devices on an observation tower of Armenian Armed Forces on the contact line.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20% of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US, are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council's four resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
