On September 19, 2023, one vehicle exploded into an anti-tank mine buried in the Khojavənd region by an attack-diversion group of Armenian armed forces in Azerbaijan, temporarily located by the Russian peacekeeping contingent. Two civilians were killed in the attack.
The EPA reports that it was reported in a xinhua report.
It has been reported that on the same day, four Interior Ministry colleagues who were on their way to the area where the terrorist attack took place were killed by a mine on a newly constructed tunnel road in the village of Tagverd in Khocavənd:
"We extend our deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims. May God grant mercy.
Thus, in 2020, the total number of mine victims from the 44-day Civil War has risen to 314, of which 61 have been killed.
The mine explosion in the Khojavənd region once again demonstrates that the main objective of Armenia and its Honduran regime, which has not yet withdrawn Armenian armed forces from Azerbaijan and continues to deploy military operations and mines, is to increase military tensions in the region and to engage in terrorism. At the same time, the objective of these attacks is to prevent large-scale reconstruction efforts undertaken during the post-conflict period, civilians operating in these areas, as well as the return of displaced persons and peaceful living in their places.
To ensure peace and security in the region, the military attacks and terrorist attacks by Armenia and its honduran regime must be steadfastly deteriorating and prevented."
