Azerbaijan claims capture of strategic height in Nagorno-Karabakh

Azerbaijani militaries have occupied the Buzukh height located in Karabakh conflict zone, the Azeri Ministry of Defence (MoD) has informed today.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on August 3, Azerbaijan announced the conduct of the "Retribution" operation in Nagorno-Karabakh in response to the murder of its military serviceman. On August 5, Azerbaijan and Nagorno-Karabakh reported about new shelling incidents.

Azerbaijani servicemen occupied the Sarybaba heights in the Shusha District, and Gyrkhgyz in the Khodjaly District. This gave Azerbaijan a strategic advantage, the Azerbaijani military experts interviewed by the "Caucasian Knot" noted on August 5.

Azerbaijani militaries have taken control over Mount Buzdukh, the Azeri MoD has stated today. "As a result of measures to clarify our positions on the ground, our units took control of Mount Buzdukh and the heights surrounding it," the TASS has quoted the MoD's statement.

Let us remind you that earlier the Russian MoD reported about repeated violations of the ceasefire regime in the vicinity of Sarybaba and Buzdukh heights, as well as in the Mardakert District.
