Claims of Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev about the capture of the town of Hadrut in the Nagorno-Karabakh region from Armenian forces appeared to be fake.
Russian war journalists Semen Pegov and Alexander Kots visited the town, which remains close to the frontline between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces, and filmed a video evidence confirming that it remains in the hands of the Armenian side.
Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani top leadeship and Azerbaijani media still claim that the town is in the hands of Azerbaijan. According to pro-Armenian sources, Azerbaijani special forces (with the alleged support from Turkish-backed Syrian militants) once again tried to capture the town just a few hours before the start of the humanitarian ceasefire on October 10. Nonetheless, this attack was repelled by the Armenians.
