Azerbaijan : The Azerbaijani army has liberated six more villages in three regions from Armenia’s occupation, Azerbaijan’s president announced Thursday.
“Azerbaijan’s glorious Army has liberated Arish village of Fuzuli district, Doshulu village of Jabrayil district, and Edishe, Dudukchi, Edilli and Chiraguz of Khojavend district,” Aliyev said on Twitter.
“Long live Azerbaijan’s Army! Karabakh is Azerbaijan!” he added.
Relations between the two former Soviet republics have been tense since 1991, when the Armenian military occupied Upper Karabakh, or Nagorno-Karabakh, an internationally recognized territory of Azerbaijan.
