Missiles fired at Gabala launched from Armenia's Gafan and Jermuk

Azerbaijan's gorgeous touristic center Gabala which is far away from theatre of military operations became the target of Armenia's missile strike, assistant to the President of Azerbaijan - head of Foreign Policy Affairs Department Hikmat Hajiyev said.

"Missiles launched from Gafan and Jermuk regions of Armenia. Most likely Saddam Hussein used Scuds. The insanity of Armenia has no limits," he wrote on Twitter.

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, 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.
