Ali Alizada added that the Azerbaijani army had liberated 20 more villages from the Armenian occupation, including the border area of Aghbend.
In his statement, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev also expressed happiness over the liberation of the Aghbend border region from the control of the Armenian army.
Ilham Aliyev says he would like to congratulate the people of Azerbaijan on this occasion and pay tribute to his brave army.
It should be noted that Armenia and Azerbaijan have been fighting for several days over the Nagorno-Karabakh issue in which hundreds of people have been killed.
Twice attempts were made for a temporary ceasefire between the two countries, but violations soon followed.
It should be noted that both countries claim ownership of the Nagorno-Karabakh region, but the Nagorno-Karabakh region is part of the officially and internationally recognized Azerbaijan, but was occupied by an Armenian ethnic group with the help of Armenia in the 1990 war. Was and is now under the control of the Armenian army.
Clashes between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces continue in the region, with 15 people killed in a similar clash in July this year.
