On September 19, 2023, a vehicle transporting personnel from the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Republic of Azerbaijan was en route to the scene of a terrorist incident that tragically claimed the lives of State Agency of Azerbaijan Automobile Roads employees. This incident occurred on the 58th kilometer of the Ahmedbeyli-Fuzuli-Shusha road, which passes through the Khojavend region on that fateful day. Tragically, in the early hours of that day at approximately 04:30 a.m., in the Tagaverd village of Khojavend district along the newly constructed tunnel road, these MIA personnel lost their lives in a horrifying terrorist attack. This attack was executed by means of an explosive device, a mine, cunningly placed by illegal Armenian armed groups operating within the vicinity of a temporary peacekeeping zone.
May their souls rest in peace, and may their families find solace during this difficult time.
