    KARABAKH  15 June 2024 - 14:54

    In a continuing effort to maintain public safety, Azerbaijani police in Khankandi have uncovered a significant cache of weapons and narcotics during recent operations.

    According to the Interior Ministry, comprehensive measures conducted from June 8 to 15 led to the discovery and seizure of various arms and illicit substances, Caliber.Az reports.

    The seized items included 8 automatic rifles, a pistol, 20 hand grenades, 9 rifles, 17 fuses, 825 cartridges of various calibers, and 8 bayonet knives.

    Additionally, law enforcement discovered 1,700 bushes of wild-growing narcotic plants and seized 30 kilograms of cannabis in Karkijahan settlement, Khankandi city.

    The findings highlight ongoing efforts by authorities to combat illegal activities and maintain security in the region. The operation underscores the importance of vigilant law enforcement in tackling crime and ensuring public welfare amidst challenging circumstances

    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.
