Azerbaijani militaries suffer in explosion near Sugovushan village

The military servicemen, Aliev Punkhan Shaban oglu and Bakhtiyar Ilgaroglu, have been wounded in a mine explosion near the village of Sugovushan while searching for missing soldiers.

Both victims were hospitalized; their lives are out of danger, the "Report.az" has informed citing the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defence (MoD).

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported, on March 3, in a village of the Agdam District, the car of an Azerbaijani official ran into a mine. He was seriously wounded; doctors had to amputate his foot. On March 17, five people were blown up by a mine in the same area.

Let us remind you that Azerbaijani law enforcers are regularly detaining residents for violating the ban on visiting the Karabakh territories that have passed under Azerbaijan's control. For example, on April 5, two drunken residents of the Fizuli District tried to drive into the territory not cleared of mines yet.
