Artsakh DA: The operational situation on the Karabakh-Azerbaijan  contact line is relatively stable

ArmInfo.The operational situation on the Karabakh-Azerbaijani contact line of troops, both throughout yesterday and today at night, was relatively stable. This  is stated in the statement of the NKR Defense Army, in connection  with the aggravation of the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani  state border.

At the same time, NKR DA emphasized that the advanced units of the  Defense Army continue to carry out the combat missions assigned to  them and are always ready, if necessary, to give a worthy answer to  the enemy provocations.

It should be noted that the day before, at around 12:30, the  Azerbaijani Armed Forces, for reasons unknown to the Armenian side,  attempted to violate the state border of the Republic of Armenia in  the Tavush direction by UAZ car. After warning the Armenian side,  leaving the UAZ car, the enemy troops returned to their positions. At  13:45, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, using artillery fire, tried to  capture the Armenian stronghold, but were thrown back by the fire,  incurring loss of manpower. There are no losses from the Armenian  side.

Toward evening, the enemy resumed shelling of Armenian positions, in  the direction of a strong point that had not previously been  captured. All night the Azerbaijani Armed Forces subjected to  intensive firing of 82 mm mortars and tanks from the aforementioned  strong point.

As it became known, in the morning, after two or three hours of calm,  the enemy resumed provocative actions on the Armenian-Azerbaijani  state border in the Tavush direction, and continued shelling of  Armenian positions.

The Armenian side warned the enemy that all responsibility for  further aggravation of the situation would fall on the  military-political leadership of Azerbaijan.

According to the official statement of the Ministry of Defense of the  Republic of Azerbaijan, during the incident yesterday, three  servicemen of the Azerbaijani army were killed and four were injured.  But, the media is already circulating information about the fourth  dead.

It is also worth noting that in connection with this situation, the  Turkish Foreign Ministry made a statement expressing unconditional  support to Azerbaijan.
