Azerbaijani police find another Armenians-left weapons cache in Khankendi
    Automatic rifles, hand grenades and so on

    KARABAKH  28 February 2024 - 10:53

    Azerbaijani police officers have once again found weapons and ammunition in the town of Khankendi as part of comprehensive measures.

    During search activities, three automatic rifles, 49 hand grenades, a machine gun, five shotguns, 12,255 cartridges of different calibre, etc. were found and seized, the Interior Ministry's press service told Caliber.Az.

    As part of ongoing comprehensive operations, Azerbaijani law enforcement forces continue the process of searching for weapons and ammunition left by Armenians in the city of Khankendi to maintain security and stability in the region.

    Besides, investigations into the origin and intended use of the confiscated weapons continue as well.

    On September 19, 2023, Azerbaijan launched anti-terror measures to disable Armenian army forces and military infrastructure in the Karabakh region. The operation came on the heels of the intensifying Armenian attacks on the Azerbaijani positions and a mine incident in the Khojavand district that killed four Azerbaijani police officers and two road construction workers.

    Throughout the military operations, Azerbaijani forces prioritized the safety and well-being of civilians in Khankendi, implementing measures to minimize civilian casualties and damage to infrastructure. Efforts were made to facilitate the evacuation of civilians from the conflict zone and provide humanitarian assistance to those in need.

    By the time of the cessation of hostilities on September 20, the Azerbaijani military disabled artillery systems, radio-electronic warfare, military equipment, ammunition depots, military strongholds, and shelters of the Armenian army formations stationed in the Karabakh region.

    In addition, more than 90 combat posts and strategically important positions of the Armenian military formations were taken under control during the one-day operation. Seven military vehicles, 4 mortars, 1 tank, 2 infantry fighting vehicles, as well as a large number of weapons and ammunition were also seized. The Azerbaijani troops targeted only military facilities throughout the hostilities avoiding any strike on civilians and civilian infrastructure.

    The counter-terrorism measures concluded after the Armenian military formations agreed to full disarmament by laying down arms, handing over the military hardware, and withdrawing from their battle positions and military outposts. Armenia's armed forces were also obligated to leave Azerbaijani territory, and illegal Armenian armed groups were to be disbanded.
