Azerbaijani Army has destroyed military equipment of Armenian army along the contact line of Azerbaijani and Armenian troops, the Defense Ministry reported on December 8.

The Azerbaijani side also destroyed an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) of Armenia.

The Defense Ministry told Trend that a small UAV of the Armenian Armed Forces was detected on December 6 and was destroyed the same day by the air defense troops of Azerbaijan’s Air Forces.

Armenia and Azerbaijan fought a lengthy war that ended with the signing of a fragile ceasefire in 1994. More than 20,000 Azerbaijanis were killed and over 1 million were displaced as a result of the large-scale hostilities. Since the war, Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan’s territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding regions. Armenia continues the occupation in defiance of four UN Security Council resolutions calling for immediate and unconditional withdrawal.

Peace talks brokered by mediators from Russia, France and the U.S. have produced no results so far.
