Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev announced on October 18 that his forces had captured the historical Khudaferin Bridge in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The bridge, which was constructed over the Aras River in the 11th century, links the area of Jabrayil in the southern part of Nagorno-Karabakh with Iranian territory.

“Azerbaijani Armed Forces have raised Azerbaijan’s flag over the ancient Khudaferin Bridge. Long live the people of Azerbaijan! Karabakh is Azerbaijan!” Ilham Aliyev said on Twitter.

President Aliyev and a number of media sources shared videos confirming that Azerbaijani troops have taken over Khudaferin Bridge.

The capture of Khudaferin Bridge came less than 24 hours after the new humanitarian ceasefire, which started at 12:00 PM of October 17.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan claimed that its forces had destroyed 2 radars of a S-300 system, 5 T-72 battle tanks, 3 BM-21 multiple rocket launchers (MRLS), 2 BM-30 MLRS, 1 D-20 howitzer, 1 KS-19 anti-aircraft gun and 6 vehicles before the beginning of the ceasefire.

Azerbaijan is not respecting the new humanitarian ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh. Baku’s forces are likely planning to advance further in the region.
