Hikmet Hajiyev, an assistant to Azerbaijan’s president, also shared footage of Aliyev on Twitter. "President Ilham Aliyev and 1st Lady Mehriban Aliyeva are in centre of Jabrayil after liberation. Everything razed to ground. Magnitude of Armenia's vandalism is beyond any imagination. President Ilham Aliyev emphasized that all-out reconstruction work will be conducted," he said.
