Over the years, mines and ammunition become more sensitive to external factors, the operational manager at the ANAMA, Khalig Zulfugarov said in an interview with Report.
Zulfugarov said that mines rust over time, their hermeticity decreases, and as a result, the explosive composition of the mine begins to mix with nature, soil, and water: "Although such mines begin to rot, their effectiveness does not decrease. On the contrary, the internal mechanism of mines becomes more sensitive and unstable."
Zulfugarov also spoke about the points that citizens should pay attention to for security in the liberated territories:
"There are a number of signs for people entering an area to know that the area is dangerous. If there is any element in the area that indicates that fighting has been going on, such as dug trenches, barbed wire, fragments of exploded mines, shell and cartridge cases, and the like, then you are in a dangerous area. Citizens should know that when they see something, they should not touch it. Because the Armenians used traps a lot. For this purpose, they placed attractive objects in the areas. It should be noted that mines are very difficult to see because they are buried in the ground and skillfully hidden."
