Azerbaijani State Border Service opens new unit in Gubadli

The Azerbaijani state border service this week (6 April) established a new military unit on the border with Armenia. This is the third unit opened by Azerbaijan in the last month in the Gubadli district, with the others opening on 18 March and 1 April.

Gubadli is one of the seven Azerbaijani territories surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh held by Armenia until last year’s 44-day war, and which has since reverted back to Azerbaijani control.
