Khankandi weapons sweep yields significant trophies
    Azerbaijani Interior Ministry says

    KARABAKH  22 April 2024 - 12:39

    In a continuing effort to maintain peace and security in the region, Azerbaijani police have uncovered a cache of weapons and ammunition in the city of Khankandi. The discovery, part of ongoing comprehensive measures, underscores the commitment of Azerbaijani authorities to ensure the safety of citizens and uphold law and order.

    Azerbaijan's Ministry of Internal Affairs told Caliber.Az that the operation yielded significant results, with authorities seizing 13 automatic rifles, two grenade launchers, 23 hand grenades, 11 fuses for hand grenades, and 2,780 cartridges of various calibers. Additionally, seven bayonet knives were among the items confiscated during the sweep.

    The successful operation highlights the effectiveness of coordinated efforts by law enforcement agencies to root out illegal weapons and prevent potential threats to public safety. By removing such weapons from circulation, authorities aim to safeguard communities and deter criminal activity in the region.

    Khankandi, a city with strategic significance, has been a focal point for security measures following recent conflicts in the region. The diligent efforts of law enforcement personnel underscore the government's determination to ensure stability and peace for residents of Khankandi and surrounding areas.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Amenia's armed forces were also obligated to leave Azerbaijani territory, and illegal Armenian armed groups were to be disbanded.
