The towns of Terter and Goradiz near the actual border with Nagorno-Karabakh also came under heavy fire from the Armenian side.
Armenian forces fired on the city of Ganja, Azerbaijan’s second-largest city. The news agency Reuters reported this on Sunday, October 4, citing the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.
Terter and Goradiz towns near the actual border with Nagorno-Karabakh also came under heavy fire from the Armenian side, according to the Azerbaijani military department.
Armenia denies shelling Azerbaijani territory, but Nagorno-Karabakh leader Araik Harutyunyan said his troops destroyed a military airbase in Ganja.
“Regular military units located in big cities of Azerbaijan now become targets of Nagorno-Karabakh army defense,” he said.
As it was reported, the Azerbaijani army occupied eight settlements that were previously controlled by the Armenian military during the offensive.
Earlier, the Armenian Defense Ministry stated that the Defense Army of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic stopped the offensive of the Azerbaijani armed forces, which began on Saturday morning, October 3.
