President Ilham Aliyev: "Fuzuli Airport is the door of Karabakh"

During the First Karabakh War, the heavy battles lasting from March 27 to April 3, 1993, resulted in the occupation of Azerbaijan's Kalbajar region by the Armenian armed forces. By that time, Shusha, Khankandi, Khojaly, Asgaran, Khojavand, Aghdara, Hadrut and Lachin had already been occupied by the Armenian terrorist army. On October 29, 1993, Aghdam, Jabrayil, Fuzuli, Gubadli and Zangilan regions were occupied.
In response to the large-scale provocations committed by the Armenian armed forces on September 27, 2020, the Azerbaijani Army launched the counter-attack operation called "Iron fist". The 44-day Patriotic War resulted in the end of the nearly 30-year occupation and the restoration of our territorial integrity.
After the brave Azerbaijani Army liberated the majority of our lands, the Armenian leadership surrendered and returned Kalbajar, Aghdam and Lachin regions to their true owners without a battle. The glorious victory obtained by victorious Supreme Commander-in-Chief Ilham Aliyev has gone down in our history.
Now, we are returning to our native lands to build, establish, create...
The people, who were once trying to save their lives, are now returning to their ancestral lands...



The Azerbaijani people and Army under the leadership of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan, Supreme Commander-in-Chief have claimed victory over the occupant Armenian forces by demonstrating the unprecedented heroism and bravery. This success achieved at the cost of the lives and blood of our glorious Army is the highest indicator of Azerbaijan's strength.

We commemorate with gratitude and honor the memory of the martys, who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Shusha and many occupied territories, wish recovery, strength and power to the war veterans. The waving of the tricolor flag of the Republic of Azerbaijan in the liberated territories is the source of pride.

To further victory and triumph in the direction of the restoration of our territorial integrity, Powerful Azerbaijan!

Karabakh is Azerbaijan!

2020 and after...
