Three persons fell victim to landmine explosion in Agdam District

A landmine explosion occurred in the Agdam District of Azerbaijan. As a result, a civilian was killed, and two more persons, including a military man, were injured.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that starting from September 27, 93 Azerbaijani civilians were killed in missile attacks, and five others were blown up on landmines. 414 people were injured, including four persons who suffered as a result of landmine explosions, the General Prosecutor's Office of Azerbaijan reported.

After the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh, the process of demining may take a year. Russian political analysts note that clearing the places of battles from ammunition is a long and difficult process.

Let us remind you that on November 20, the Azerbaijani army took control of the Agdam District in accordance with the terms of the peace agreement.
