ArmInfo. Armenia's Armed Forces work every minute, are constantly vigilant, but the Ministry of Defense does not want to voice everything, and prefers to be restrained. The Spokesman of the RA Ministry of Defense Artsrun Hovhannisyan wrote about this on his Facebook page.
"Improving our fighting positions is an ongoing process, Glory to the Armenian army!" - Hovhannisyan wrote.
Earlier, a number of Armenian media reported that the Armenian Armed Forces had achieved major military-strategic success on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border in the Tavush region. According to sources, the matter concerns the most northeastern corner of the country, located at the junction of the borders of three states - Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia, a territory located northeast of the villages of Berdavan and Zorakan, Tavush region.
Units of the 3rd Army Corps under the command of Colonel Khachaturov Grigory Yuryevich managed to free and / or withdraw from enemy control about 140 hectares of historical Armenian territory. In some areas, the advancement of our fighters amounted to more than 1.5 kilometers. In addition, the gas pipeline leading to Armenia and passing through the "neutral territory" is now under the full control of the Armenian forces. As a result of successful actions, the armed forces of Armenia managed to thwart a major enemy provocation, which aimed to establish control over part of the highway of national importance leading from Armenia to Georgia.
Moreover, as a result of the unexpected advance of the Armenian troops, the situation in this section of the state border has now changed dramatically. Now, the strategic highway leading from Azerbaijan to Georgia is already under direct control from the dominant positions occupied by the Armenian forces. Also in the affected area was the village of Ikinji Shykhly of the Kazakh (Khalkhal) region of the republic, located on the border with Georgia, with all its sown areas and rural pastures. But this is not all: the second direction was the village of Chinari in the Tavush region of Armenia, which was repeatedly subjected to enemy shelling and sabotage attacks. In this direction, our fighters managed to take three key heights and, finally, ensure the safety of the village and its inhabitants. This operation also made it possible to lift the blockade of the monastery complex of Khoranashat (13th century), located northeast of Chinari, "the Armenian media reported.
