Number of houses damaged in Tartar during second Karabakh war unveiled

As many as 7,056 houses and facilities were damaged in Azerbaijan’s Tartar during the 2020 second Karabakh war, Mustagim Mammadov, head of Tartar district’s executive power told reporters.

Mammadov states, 6,003 of them are private houses and non-residential buildings.

"Repairs are underway regarding 344 buildings, which are expected to be completed by the end of November," he added.

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation from late Sept. to early Nov. 2020, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by the Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM, and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Karabakh conflict were introduced on Nov. 10, 2020.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, the Armenian Armed Forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.
