The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan announced on Wednesday, August 3, that the troops had taken control of several strategic heights in the disputed area Nagorno-Karabakh as a result of a new escalation, as a result of which three soldiers died.

In particular, the height of Girkhgyz was taken under control, and control was established over the dominant heights of Sarybab and a number of others along the Karabakh ridge of the Lesser Caucasus.

The Azerbaijani army stated that it carried out an operation called “Retribution” in response to the “terrorist actions of illegal Armenian armed groups on the territory of Azerbaijan.”

The Ministry of Defense reported that Karabakh troops fired at the positions of the Azerbaijani army in the Lachin region, which is under the supervision of Russian peacekeeping forces, killing an Azerbaijani conscript.

According to the publication www.haqqin.az, the Azerbaijani army attacked with a drone in the area of ​​the Sarybaba height, as a result, the military truck “Ural” of the Armenian army was destroyed. An air strike was also delivered on a military unit in the settlement of Yukhari Oratagh of the former Aghdere region. As a result, several D-30 howitzers, military vehicles and a large amount of ammunition were destroyed.

Armenia and Azerbaijan fought two wars – in 2020 and in the 1990s – over the Armenian-populated region Nagorno-Karabakh.

Six weeks of fighting in the fall of 2020 claimed more than 6,500 lives and ended with a ceasefire agreement. Armenia ceded tracts of territory it had controlled for decades.
