According to our observations, the first day of the battle from the field near Gapanli and near Shikharkh villages continued for 10-12 hours at least, noted that the enemy stopped shelling our settlements for a long time three times. It was around noon, after 4:00 pm, and at dusk.


Affected by the tactical fire advantage of the Azerbaijani cannon and rocket artillery, which arranged a kind of proactive play - firing back and leaving positions in a short time. As soon as the dust dissipated behind the valley, we saw that a pair of MLRS was already a kilometer or two from the ravine from which the fire was fired.

All our divisions were working like a well-coordinated mechanism, without excitement and haste, as if being in an exercise. Those very endless maneuvers brought our victory closer.

According to our assumptions, because of the intense fire, the occupier was gradually running out of ammunition.  Although the breaks in the shelling lasted 2-4 hours, it did not stop even at night.

As noted earlier, the Armenian side was preparing a large-scale provocation, removed tank and artillery shells, mines, MLRS missiles and other ammunition in advance from all warehouses in the village of Sugovushan.

As it turned out later, the artillery of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan inflicted precise strikes against previously explored hidden field storage facilities and transport. One of such blows disabled an ammunition depot in a bunker on the hills opposite Shikharkh, and we watched the fire for a long time.

In response, Armenian mines, shells and rockets flew to Shikharkh, Sahlabad, Duyarli, Gapanli, Yenikand, Garadaghli villages. That was the only thing that the enemy could do before our units began a deceitful frontal attack on both banks of the dry Tartar River and from fortified positions near Chayli village. A few days before the actual operation to liberate the village of Sugovushan, the Azerbaijani Army played out three frontal "attacks" (two northern and one southern) by mechanized units on the terrain, which was excellently viewed from ultra-zoom cameras that were installed at heights along the perimeter of the settlement. On the line of safe removal, our subunits wedged into the Armenians' first line of defence and suddenly pulled back, leaving a field for overwhelming fire on the defensive lines of the occupying contingent.

Realizing that such an onslaught could not be sustained for a long time, and the Azerbaijani side was not going to attack the dominant heights with shouts of "hurray", the Armenian units began to dig in their own trenches. As absurd as it sounds, but the individual holes we saw in the enemy's trenches allow us to speak about this. It was this tactic of passive defense that was worked out by the Armenian Armed Forces during the provocation in Tovuz direction in the summer of 2020, when during the artillery barrage, Armenians hid in pre-prepared recesses, which often turned into their last fetid refuge.

In parallel with the pressure on the entire line of contact the only thing they managed in a panic haste was to burn down the archive and try to destroy the traces of the presence of foreign terrorists in his ranks in a military unit #33651

Counter-battery fire destroyed several positions of enemy artillery in the northeast of the village of Sugovushan and southwest of it, near the Sarsang reservoir.

Now the units of the 6th and 7th defensive areas of the occupation contingent of the Armenian Armed Forces were partially cut off from supply, could not effectively control the units, lost some of their armored vehicles and artillery, but according to the picture from the surveillance cameras, they still continued to believe that they would be able to withstand the power of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan.
