The Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense said that its military attacked the location of the Russian contingent in Nagorno-Karabakh. Video was published in the department.
The Azerbaijani military claims that it hit the Soviet P-18 Terek radar station in the Khojavend region of Nagorno-Karabakh. According to them, soldiers of the Russian contingent are temporarily stationed there.
The Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense states that the affected radar belongs to the Armenian army, and the strike against it was a targeted attack.
On the morning of September 19, Baku announced that the Azerbaijani army had begun “anti-terrorist measures” in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Azerbaijan demands that Armenia completely withdraw its troops from Nagorno-Karabakh and dissolve the government of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (Artsakh). The Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry says that the operation in the region is a response to a number of “military provocations and terrorist attacks” by Armenian forces.
Azerbaijan invites civilians to leave populated areas through organized corridors on the Lachin road and other directions. At this time, the army is striking at the positions and points of the Armenian troops.
Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan stated at a briefing that his country refuses to begin military operations with Azerbaijan because of the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh.
At the same time, he believes that the Russian contingent in the region should “take measures” to stabilize the situation.
April 18, 2023 President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev stated that Armenians living in Nagorno-Karabakh must accept Azerbaijani citizenship or leave.
