A resident of the Chemenli village of Azerbaijan’s Aghdam district Ali Huseynov, 67, who was injured as a result of shelling by Armenian armed forces, died in hospital.

On the night of April 27-28, Armenian armed forces shelled settlements in Azerbaijan’s Aghdam district along the contact line, leaving one person dead, eight others injured.


As a result of the shelling, a resident of the Chemenli village of Azerbaijan's Aghdam district Famil Mustafayev died of shrapnel wounds.


All the injured were brought to the Aghdam district central hospital. Among the injured, Zahid Rahimov is in critical condition.

The other injured – Anar Abdullayev, Elnur Mammadov, Elgiz Taghiyev, Zahid Farajov, Anar Mammadov and Sirdash Karimov are in stable condition.

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict entered its modern phase when the Armenian SRR made territorial claims against the Azerbaijani SSR in 1988.


A fierce war broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. As a result of the war, Armenian armed forces occupied some 20 percent of Azerbaijani territory which includes Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent districts (Lachin, Kalbajar, Aghdam, Fuzuli, Jabrayil, Gubadli and Zangilan), and over a million Azerbaijanis became refugees and internally displaced people.


The military operations finally came to an end when Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in Bishkek in 1994.


Dealing with the settlement of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict is the OSCE Minsk Group, which was created after the meeting of the OSCE Ministerial Council in Helsinki on 24 March 1992. The Group’s members include Azerbaijan, Armenia, Russia, the United States, France, Italy, Germany, Turkey, Belarus, Finland and Sweden.


Besides, the OSCE Minsk Group has a co-chairmanship institution, comprised of Russian, US and French co-chairs, which began operating in 1996.

Resolutions 822, 853, 874 and 884 of the UN Security Council, which were passed in short intervals in 1993, and other resolutions adopted by the UN General Assembly, PACE, OSCE, OIC, and other organizations require Armenia to unconditionally withdraw its troops from Nagorno-Karabakh.
