Armenians commit arsons in occupied villages
Armenian Armed Forces continue to commit arsons in the occupied villages of Azerbaijan’s Agdam region.
The arsons were set in the villages of Bayramlar, Bash Garvand and Kangarli, APA reported on June 11.
Residents of the frontline village of Mirashalli told reporters that mines laid near the contact line explode because of the fire.
The arsons were also observed throughout the night in Bash Garvand and Shikhlar villages, which are under the control of Armenian occupant forces. The smoke still pours out in the areas of fire.
Last week, Armenians set arsons in the occupied part of Agdam region, and it spread to the Chiragli village located near the contact line of Armenian-Azerbaijani troops. Although the fire was extinguished, pastures and trees around the village burned down.
The Armenians frequently commit arsons in the occupied Azerbaijani territories, particularly in summer, which also spread to frontline settlements.
For more than two decades Armenia and Azerbaijan are in a state of war following Yerevan’s aggression, ethnic cleansing policy and illegal territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenia keeps under control over 20 percent of Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions in a brutal war in the early 1990s.
Despite a fragile ceasefire agreement signed in 1994, Armenia keeps violating armistice with Azerbaijan by regular provocations on the contact line of troops.
