On Saturday, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev announced that his country’s army had liberated the entire city of Fuzuli from the Armenian occupation, while the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense announced the shooting down of an Armenian fighter in Karabakh.
In a speech to the people, the President of Azerbaijan said that the army liberated the city center of Fuzuli, and all of the villages of Kuchmitli, Chemin, Jovarli, Berahmitli, Musabili, Ishqali and Diddili, which belong to it.

The area of Fuzuli Governorate is 1,386 square kilometers, and includes the governorate center and town, and 75 villages, of which only 20 villages have not been subject to the Armenian occupation.
