As a result of demining activities carried out by the Azerbaijan Army’s engineer-sapper units, the next mines buried by the opposing side in the territory of the Kalbajar and Dashkasan regions were detected, APA reports citing Azerbaijan's Ministry of Defence.

79 PMN-E anti-personnel mines and 2 TM-62M anti-tank mines in the territory of the Kalbajar region and 53 PMN-E anti-personnel mines and 4 OZM-72 anti-personnel fragmentation mines in the territory of the Dashkasan region were neutralized in compliance with safety regulations.

It should be noted that according to International humanitarian law, the 1997 Ottawa Convention prohibits the production, stockpiling, transfer, and use of anti-personnel mines.

Despite this, a significant number of Armenian-made mines are detected in the liberated territories after the Patriotic War. In particular, anti-personnel mines, buried with the purpose of causing human casualties, pose a serious danger to the lives of both civilians and servicemen.

The Azerbaijan Army’s engineer-sapper units continue activities on demining the Azerbaijani territories.
