An anti-personnel minefield buried by illegal Armenian armed detachments was discovered in the eastern part of Lachin region, in the northwestern direction of the Sarıbaba height, reports the Defense Ministry.
The area was explored by units of the Engineering Corps of the Azerbaijan Army. The discovered mines were neutralized by a specially trained fortification team.
On August 15, within one day, a total of 991 PMN-E anti-personnel mines were removed from the mined area, transported, and disposed of in compliance with safety regulations.
Notably, all the mines discovered in this direction were produced in Armenia after the Patriotic War – in 2021.
