President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev spoke about the Shusha operation during the Patriotic War in his speech at a military parade held in Khankendi on the occasion of November 8 – Victory Day, APA reports.
The head of state said that the sons of Azerbaijan had showed selflessness during this operation. “The Shusha operation, of course, has a special place in the 44-day Patriotic War. Because liberating Shusha, which is considered an impregnable fortress located in a very difficult geographical terrain, with only light weapons and in many cases in a hand-to-hand combat, required great strength, professionalism and dedication. The sons of Azerbaijan showed exactly that.”
