The Azerbaijani Armed Forces continue to advance steadily in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
On October 4, President Ilham Aliyev announced the capture of the city of Jabrayil, that is located in the southeastern part of Nagorno-Karabakh near the border with Iran. Azerbaijani Forces also captured the towns of Karkhulu, Horovlu, Shukurbeyli, Cherekan, Dashkasan, Mahmudlu, Jafarabad, Yuxari Maralyan and Dejal.
“Today Azerbaijan’s Army has liberated from occupation the city of Jabrayil and several surrounding villages. Long live Azerbaijan’s Army! Karabakh is Azerbaijan!,” the President wrote on Twitter.
A day earlier, Azerbaijani forces captured the towns of Mehdili, Chaxirli, Ashagi Maralyan, Sheybey and Guyjag in the district of Jabrayil. The village of Talish of the Terter district in the northeastern part of Nagorno-Karabakh was also captured along with the town of Mataghis.
The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan released a number of videos showing captured Armenian positions in different parts of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Despite losing some positions, Armenian forces continue to show fierce resistance. The Azerbaijani Armed Forces sustained heavy losses while attempting to advance in Nagorno-Karabakh as seen in newly-released videos.
The heated battle in Nagorno-Karabakh may go on for weeks, if not months. Both Azerbaijan and Armenia are not willing to agree on a ceasefire, as for now.
