    In an ongoing effort to clear the town of Khankandi and surrounding regions of Armenian weapons, Azerbaijani police officers have discovered and seized a substantial cache of arms and explosives.

    According to the Interior Ministry's press service, complex measures from May 11 to 18 resulted in the confiscation of 43 automatic rifles, 3 pistols, 8 shotguns, 15 hand grenades, a C-4 bomb, 19 fuses for hand grenades, 6,480 cartridges of various calibers, 3 bayonet knives, and a drone in Khankandi, Caliber.Az reports.

    Additionally, law enforcement officers recovered 13 automatic rifles, 2 grenade launchers, a machine gun, and 60 rounds of ammunition in the Shusha city, Fuzuli, and Khojali districts.

    These operations are part of Azerbaijan's continued efforts to ensure security and stability in the region by removing hazardous materials and disarming remaining armed elements.

    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.
