On October 16, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces continued its slow but steady advance in the Armenian-held region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
President Ilham Aliyev announced that his forces had captured three more villages in the district of Khojavend, located in the eastern part of the region.
“Azerbaijan’s glorious Army has liberated Khirmanjig, Agbulag and Akhullu villages of Khojavend district,” Ilham Aliyev said on Twitter, “Long live Azerbaijan’s Army! Karabakh is Azerbaijan!”
A day ago, Azerbaijani forces captured the villages of Arish, Doshulu, Edishe, Dudukchi, Edilli and Chiraguz. Before that, the villages of Garadaghli, Melikjanli, Garakollu, Bulutan, Tagaser, Khatunbulag, Kemertuk and Teke were captured.
The fierce resistance of Armenian forces is slowing the advance of Azerbaijani troops. In the morning, a large attack on Nagorno-Karabakh’s southern part was repelled. The attackers sustained serious losses.
Azerbaijani forces are relaying on heavy fire power, precision weapons and the support of Syrian mercenaries. Turkey is also playing a key role in the aerial operations taking place over Nagorno-Karabakh.
