The resident of the Afetli village of Azerbaijan's Aghdam district, Elnur Mammadov, wounded in the Armenian shelling on the night of April 28, continues his treatment in the district's central hospital, chief of the hospital's medical staff Bakhtiyar Akhverdiyev told Trend Apr. 30.

He said that Mammadov was operated on and at the moment his condition is assessed as fair. "There are no serious complications, the treatment continues in the hospital room, and in the near future he will be sent to outpatient treatment," Akhverdiyev said.

He went on to add that the condition of three of the seven injured is not serious, and they were transferred to Barda city medical diagnostic center.

Starting from April 27 evening until 04:00 (GMT + 4) April 28, the Armenian armed forces were firing at the Azerbaijani settlements and the Azerbaijani army positions in the Terter and Aghdam districts of Azerbaijan.

Two people were killed and many more wounded as a result of the Aghdam shelling. At least 84 houses in the district were heavily damaged, some of them completely destroyed.

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.
