Late president Heydar Aliyev had a great role in successful implementation of Horadiz operation. Upon the call of the national leader, attack operations were held.
Commander of Horadiz operation, reserve Colonel Shair Ramaldanov told the aforesaid, Defence.az reported.
The colonel said these fights are the source of pride of the Azerbaijani people. “We forced the enemy to retreat 25-30 km back. Suffering many losses, the Armenian side was forced to sign Bishkek protocol. The Azerbaijani army once more showed heroism in April 2016. The power of an Azerbaijani soldier is known to the whole world, as well as Armenia. The Armenian leadership already knows what they would face, if a war starts. They express their concern. If Azerbaijan liberates its lands by force, Armenian mothers’ eyes will run with tears.”
The reserve colonel stressed that Horadiz operation was the start of the April fights: “Thus, the April fights were its continuation and I believe we have so many such victories.”
The Azerbaijani Armed Forces today mark the 24th anniversary of Horadiz operation, which started in December 1993 and lasted till January 6, 1994.
