It became known about the new decision of the Azerbaijani authorities in connection with the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. The reports of the Ministry of Education of the Republic say that, that a decision was made to close about four hundred and twenty schools in settlements, adjacent to the zone of the newly erupted armed conflict.
The head of the Azerbaijani Ministry of Education Emin Amrullayev noted, that all schools are closed in 3 districts of the republic, and in eleven, at least a third of schools have been suspended.
Azerbaijani government official:
It is impossible to conduct classes in these educational institutions, since they are in the frontline zone. But after three or four days, classes in them will be resumed..
This statement gives the experts a reason to talk about, that Baku has decided on the timing of the operation and the end of the fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh. Given the fact, that the intensity of hostilities is only growing, and also taking into account the words of Amrullaev, it is assumed, that Azerbaijan plans to dislodge the troops of Armenia and NKR from those regions, who are considered occupied, by the end of this week. After all, it was precisely the resumption of classes in the schools of the front-line territories in three or four days that the Azerbaijani official said., which can be considered an indirect sign of the indicated deadlines for completion of the operation.
This leaves the question: and if the fighting is not over by the end of the week? apparently, classes in schools will not be resumed.
