Despite the Ministry of Defence of Azerbaijan denying the news of Armenian army capturing Garagaya height during the “6 day” artillery war between Azerbaijani and Armenian forces on 12-17 July of 2020, we still witness major manipulation of information on this issue.
The strategically important Garagaya height is currently under control of Azerbaijani forces, as it was during the firefights and is being used to observe Armenian forces and numerous settlements. The last time both sides used heavy artillery fire and launched military operations against each other was in 1992-1993. Until today, weapons used in ceasefire violations have mostly been smaller arms.
The July incident passed onto history as the first severely violent shooting that happened in the last 20 years.
