The Azerbaijani Armed Forces has captured six new villages in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh, President Ilham Aliyev announced on October 15.
The President said his troops “liberated” the village of Arish in Fuzuli district, Doshulu village of Jabrayil district and the villages of Edishe, Dudukchi, Edilli and Chiraguz in Khojavend district.
“I have sent clear messages to the Armenian government and the Armenian people to cease their attempts to recapture the liberated territories. It will only lead to new loss of life and further bloodshed,” Alyev wrote on Twitter.
A day earlier, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces captured the villages of Garadaghli, Melikjanli, Garakollu, Bulutan, Tagaser, Khatunbulag, Kemertuk and Teke in Nagorno-Karabakh from Armenian forces.
Last week, a ceasefire agreement on Nagorno-Karabakh was reached. The ceasefire didn’t apparently stop Azerbaijan’s ground operations in the region.
Armenian forces are showing fierce resistance and inflicting heavy losses on Azerbaijani troops. Nevertheless, they are slowly losing ground. If they fail to develop a successful counter-attack in the upcoming few days, Azerbaijan will likely advance faster and deeper in the region.
