While retreating during the second Armenia-Azerbaijan Nagorno-Karabakh War, the Armenian Armed Forces blew up the main parts of the bridges, destroyed the roads in the Nagorno-Karabakh region, Deputy Head of the Azerbaijani Department of Engineering and Reinforcement Work and Engineering Troops, Colonel Jeyhun Jafarov told reporters, Trend’s Karabakh bureau reports on Jan. 26.

"The engineering divisions were engaged in clearing these territories," Jafarov added. "The groups, which were transferred to the troops, including the special forces, ensuring the smooth movement of our troops, were created in the engineering troops."

Following over a month of military action to liberate its territories from Armenian occupation from late Sept. to early Nov. 2020, Azerbaijan has pushed Armenia to sign the surrender document. A joint statement on the matter was made by the Azerbaijani president, Armenia's PM, and the president of Russia.

A complete ceasefire and a cessation of all hostilities in the zone of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict was introduced on Nov. 10, 2020.

Armenian Armed Forces launched a large-scale military attack on positions of the Azerbaijani army on the front line, using large-caliber weapons, mortars, and artillery on Sept. 27. Azerbaijan responded with a counter-offensive along the entire front.

Back in July 2020, the Armenian Armed Forces violated the ceasefire in the direction of Azerbaijan's Tovuz district. As a result of Azerbaijan's retaliation, the opposing forces were silenced. The fighting continued the following days as well. Azerbaijan lost a number of military personnel members, who died fighting off the attacks of the Armenian Armed Forces.

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, the 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.

The World Health Organization (WHO) does not recommend using the so-called "immunity passports" with COVID-19 vaccination data for the time being, WHO Representative to Russia Melita Vujnovic has told TASS, Trend reports.

"At this stage, WHO does not recommend the use of ‘vaccination certificates’ for travelers as there are many factors that have to be considered," she said. "Also, we are still in the early stages of understanding the complete immune response to COVID-19. The immune response will probably be more difficult than what can be determined by individually measures antibodies to COVID-19 at any given time. For that reason, WHO does not recommend the use of the so-called immunity passports."

European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen earlier said that the commission was going to present a draft unified COVID-19 vaccination certificate in March. According to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the EU heads of state and government are unanimous about the need to introduce digital vaccination certificates, and the EU members will seek to create them by the summer.
