In the evening of Dec. 29, military units of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces have detected and landed an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in the direction of Azerbaijani Tartar region, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said in a message.

The UAV belonging to Armenian Armed Forces attempted to carry out reconnaissance flights over the positions of Azerbaijan Army.

Earlier on Dec. 29, a reconnaissance group of the Armenian Armed Forces tried to violate the Azerbaijan-Armenia state border. The Armenian group found itself in the ambush of the Azerbaijani army while violating the borders.

“The enemy suffered losses in the ensuing clash and had to retreat,” said the ministry.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts. The 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
