ArmInfo. Chinnari village will not be fired anymore. President of the National Assembly of RA Ararat Mirzoyan, wrote about this on his Facebook page.
"The security of the gas pipeline entering Armenia is also ensured. Glory to the Armenian soldier, glory to the Armenian army," Mirzoyan wrote.
Earlier, MP from the My Step bloc Gayane Abrahamyan noted that the Armenian military recaptured 140 hectares, three strategically important positions, from where they also managed to control the Chinari village, the Armenian-Georgian gas pipeline and the Armenian-Georgian road.
Khonarashat Temple, located near the village of Chinari, which has not been functioning since the 13th century, since the nearby road was dangerous, will be reopened, as the armed forces of Armenia now control this road, "the MP emphasized. Earlier, a number of Armenian media reported that the Armenian Armed Forces have achieved major military strategic success on the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border in the Tavush region, according to sources, in this case we are talking about the most northeastern corner of the country, located at the junction of the borders of three states in - 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 Yurevich 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 long-suffering 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 for the enemy, the situation in this section of the state border has now changed dramatically. Now, from the dominant positions occupied by the Armenian forces, the strategic highway leading from Azerbaijan to Georgia was already under direct control. Also in the affected area was the village of Ikinci Shykhly of the Qazakh (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 firing and sabotage attacks. In this direction, our fighters managed to master three key heights and, finally, ensure the safety of the village and its inhabitants. This operation also made it possible to lift the blockade from the long-suffering monastery complex of Khoranashat (13th century), located northeast of Chinari, "the Armenian media reported.
