BAKU, Azerbaijan, November 21. The damaged railroad tracks and the adjacent areas on Azerbaijan's liberated lands are full of mines, the Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) said, TurkicWorld reports.
"Sometimes people prefer to walk along the railroad tracks, considering it dangerous to walk along the path or on the field. But it can be even more dangerous. It should not be forgotten that the destroyed railroad tracks and sections were seriously contaminated with mines," the agency noted.
