Baku. Ilhama Isabalayeva–APA. Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) will neutralize the bombs found in Haji Zeynalabidin Tagiyev settlement of Sumgayit City in the mine polygon near Guzdak settlement next week. ANAMA operation expert Adil Aslanov told APA after the cleaning actions the ammunitions will be carefully taken to the polygon in special vehicles.
Aslanov said it was impossible to conduct explosions in Sumgayit because of industrial zone. They chose more secure place for the actions. The area where the bombs were found is under the control now.
