Azerbaijan Army manages to move forward in various directions of front

During the day on October 16 and on the night of October 17, the operational situation in the Aghdere-Aghdam and Fizuli-Hadrut-Jabrayil directions of the front remained tense.

Azerbaijani troops managed to break through the pre-set line of defense of the Armenian armed forces in different directions and to move forward, driving the enemy out of their positions, and, forcing him to flee, the Defense Ministry told AzVision.az.

The military personnel of the Azerbaijan Army, who have gained combat experience as a result of successful military operations, take advantageous frontiers, high grounds, and positions in important directions.

As a result of actions taken by the Azerbaijan Army during the day, a large number of military personnel of the Armenian armed forces, 7 T-72 tanks, 2 BM-21 Grad MLRS, 8 D-30, and 1 D-20 gun-howitzers, 10 units of trucks with ammunition, and 7 units of other vehicles were destroyed and disabled in different directions of the front.

According to the information received, as a result of the combat operations, the 1st battalion of the 5th mountain rifle regiment of the Armenian armed forces retreated, leaving its positions and a large number of killed and wounded behind.

Up to 300 reservists left their combat positions on the defense line of the 1st motorized rifle regiment of the armed forces of Armenia and retreated. Among the reservists, there are also many killed and wounded. The members of the special police detachment, attached to the regiment as an augmentation force, also left their combat positions and fled. There is a shortage of food and ammunition in the units of the regiment.

In units of the Armenian armed forces, there were cases of disobedience of military personnel to officers due to a feeling of fatigue and hopelessness, as well as refusal to participate in the fighting due to fear and panic.

The Azerbaijan Army retains their operational superiority, inflicting damage on the Armenian troops with precise fire along the entire front line.
