Qarabagh Anti-Terror Operation
On September 19, Azerbaijan announced local anti-terror measures in Qarabagh with the aim of "restoring constitutional order" and declared the establishment of an unregulated area within the borders of the unrecognized republic. This action was prompted by provocations by the Armenian side, including an incident involving the blockade of an automobile on the Ahmadbayli-Fuzuli-Shusha route, which resulted in the deaths of Azerbaijani police officers.
On September 20, an agreement was reached to cease hostilities, with one of the conditions being the disarmament of the Qarabagh army and the withdrawal of Armenian military forces from the unrecognized republic.
On September 20, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that Russian peacekeeping forces had suffered casualties in Qarabagh, including the commander of the peacekeeping contingent, Ivan Kovgan. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev apologized to Vladimir Putin for the incident during their conversation.
