On November 5, Armenian forces repelled a new attack by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The Azerbaijani attack, which targeted the eastern part of the region, started at 10:30 AM local time. Armenian forces quickly forced the attackers to withdrew. Azerbaijani troops left behind an armored personnel carrier, a truck and the dead bodies of several soldiers.
Meanwhile, in the northern part of Nagorno-Karabakh, Armenian forces ambushed two Azerbaijani sabotage groups. The groups were preparing to launch attacks.
While Azerbaijani forces are facing resistance in the eastern and northern frontlines of Nagorno-Karabakh, they are advancing with ease in the south.
A day earlier, Azerbaijani forces captured the villages of Mirak and Kavdar in the district of Jabrayil; Mashadiismayilli and Shafibayli in the district of Zangilan; Basharat, Garakishilar and Garajalli in the district of Gubadli.
The Azerbaijani pressure on the southern frontlines of Nagorno-Karabakh may soon lead to a collapse on the eastern and northern directions.
Armenian forces are yet to launch any meaningful counter-attack in southern Nagorno-Karabakh. Such a move, if it happens, could turn the tide of the war.
