Azerbaijani positions come under Armenian fire in Aghdam

Illegal Armenian armed groups have shelled Azerbaijani military positions located in liberated Aghdam 28 times, the Azerbaijani Defence Ministry reported on March 10.

Starting from the night of March 10 to the morning of March 11, members of the illegal Armenian armed detachment on Azerbaijani territory, where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily stationed, fired on Azerbaijan army positions in the direction of Aghdam region's Chukhurmehle, Gurdlar, Khidirli, Garadaghli, and Gasimli settlements, the ministry said in a statement.

The Azerbaijani army units took appropriate retaliatory measures to suppress the opposite side. They have complete command of the operational situation, the ministry said.

Meanwhile, the Defence Ministry denied media reports of tensions on Azerbaijani territory, where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily stationed.

"Information spread in Armenian social networks about alleged tensions on Azerbaijani territory, where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily deployed, is baseless and provocative," the ministry said.

"We declare that the situation in all directions is stable and under the control of Azerbaijani army units," the statement reads.
