Azerbaijani troops have targeted positions of local militias in Nagorno-Karabakh in a retaliation strike, Baku has said
Armed forces of Azerbaijan have conducted a military operation against the Nagorno-Karabakh militias that sought to “establish new combat positions” in the region, the nation’s defense ministry said in a statement on Wednesday. The Azerbaijani Army seized control over some “important commanding heights” during what it called ‘Operation Revenge,’ it added.
The operation was launched after the local militias “grossly violated” the 2020 ceasefire agreement between Yerevan and Baku, mediated by Moscow in 2020, the defense ministry added. Baku had earlier accused the Nagorno-Karabakh militias of attacking Azerbaijani positions in the region and confirmed the death of at least one soldier.
The ministry also published a video that appears to show an airstrike on a local militia’s base housing some artillery units. Footage showed several towed artillery pieces and trucks being destroyed.
