During the day on October 22 and on the night of October 23, the combat operations continued with varying intensity in the Aghdere, Fizuli-Hadrut-Jabrayil, and Gubadli directions. The Armenian Armed Foces fired at our defensive positions using small arms, mortars, and gun-howitzers, Defense Ministry spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Anar Eyvazov told a briefing on Friday.

Heavy strikes were inflicted on the Armenian armed forces in the Fuzuli, Jabrayil, and Gubadli directions of the front, several enemy strongholds were destroyed, important territories and high grounds were liberated as a result of the operations conducted by the Azerbaijan Army.

Azerbaijan has shot down 5 more unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) of the Armenian armed forces, the three UAVs of the Armenian armed forces were determined and destroyed by Azerbaijan Air Defence Units. The two other UAVs were downed to the ground by means of special equipment.

Armenia’s main resources and military infrastructure along the entire front were irreparably damaged. There is a shortage of military equipment, weapons, and ammunition, as well as food in Armenia’s military units. The Armenian side practically lost control of the troops. Due to the lack of regular army units to defend combat positions, civilians are forcibly brought in to replace them.

It became known that the servicemen brought from the Tavush and Sisian regions of Armenia to Nagorno-Karabakh refused to get engaged in battles and left their positions.

“The Azerbaijani Army liberated Dolanar, Bunyadli villages of Khojavand district, Dagh Tumas, Nusus, Khalafli, Minbashili, Veyselli villages of Jabrayil district, as well as Vanadli and Mirzahasanli villages of Zengilan, Zilanli, Kurd Mahrizli, Mughanli and Alagurshag villages of Gubadli district from the Armenian occupation, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev posted on his Twitter account,” said Anar Eyvazov.

Currently, battles are being continued along the entire length of the front. Our troops are in full control of the operational situation. The victory march of our army continues. Victory is with us! ” said Anar Eyvazov.
