Starting from September 27, 2020, Armenian armed forces have been intensively shelling settlements, social and strategic facilities in Azerbaijan. The civilian population of Azerbaijan is also under fire. Armenia uses heavy artillery, aircraft, missile systems, and prohibited weapons. As a result of the shelling, civilians in Azerbaijan killed, there are wounded, and serious damage has been caused to houses, historical and cultural monuments, administrative buildings, shopping centers, and other social facilities.
To suppress Armenian’s combat activity and ensure the civilian population’s safety, the command of the Azerbaijan Army decided to launch a counter-offensive operation of our troops along the entire front.
Commenting on the current situation on frontline on Turkish Ulusal Channel Television, Ahmad Shahidov, head of the Azerbaijan Institute for Democracy and Human Rights, answered questions from Gulben Bashyigit, presenter of “News13” program.
