'Caucasian Knot' attempts to present Tovuz region of Azerbaijan as Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone

'Caucasian Knot' attempts to present Tovuz region of Azerbaijan as Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone

Armenian armed forces have violated the ceasefire along the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops 24 times over the past 24 hours, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said. Agdam and Mundzhuglu villages of Tovuz region were also fired despite being located far from the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.

The shelling of Azerbaijani villages along the entire length of the border with Armenia has become a regular practice of the Armenian armed forces' provocations over the past ten years, despite the fact that these territories do not belong to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Attacks on these villages are a separate side of the Armenian aggression against Azerbaijan.

Nevertheless, an entire generation of regional journalists has grown up, for whom the shelling of Azerbaijani villages far from the line of contact (sometimes near the Georgian border) looks like hostilities in the framework of the suspended but not completed Karabakh war.

Today's news with a headline 'Azerbaijan reports on shelling of two villages in conflict zone' published by 'Caucasian Knot' is a case study  The news cites the above-mentioned summary of the Ministry of Defense about only two villages - Agdam and Mundzhuglu in the Tovuz region, which is remote from the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

Presenting shelling of Azerbaijan's border regions by the Armenian armed forces in such a way is incorrect. When covering this topic, it is necessary to be extremely accurate, since the representation of the border as part of the conflict zone helps the supporters of the Karabakh occupation to disclaim responsibility for the aggression against peaceful Azerbaijani villages far from the conflict zone and Yerevan's territorial claims.
