MD: Our will increases, which cannot be said about the enemy

ArmInfo.Currently, the fighting in Karabakh is not going along the entire front line.

Representative of the Armenian Defense Ministry Artsrun Hovhannisyan  stated this in an interview with Factor.am.

According to him, the battles are mainly taking place in the southern  sector of the confrontation north of the Araks River. Compared with  the first 10 days of fighting, the intensity of hostilities at the  front has significantly decreased. From 4 o'clock in the morning on  October 30, the enemy launched attacks in the northern direction, but  was thrown back, leaving dozens of corpses on the battlefield.

At night, some activity was observed in the villages adjacent to  Shushi, to the east of the village of Karintak. In the village of  Karintak itself, no fighting was observed, however, the nearest 2-3  villages were liberated from the sabotage groups of the enemy, here  the enemy also lost dozens of its soldier. The ammunition depot was  also destroyed, the flames from which could be seen even in  Stepanakert. Fights with saboteurs are mainly taking place in the  forests adjacent to Shushi, where there are still scattered groups of  saboteurs. Moreover, battles in forests differ in nature from those  that are fought in open areas. There are no fortifications here.  Fighting in these areas continues to this day.

Artsrun Hovhannisyan stressed that after the enemy failed to advance  in the direction of Fizuli-Martuni, he made small groups attempts to  bypass the defensive positions of the Defense Army, pursuing both the  goals of political PR and military purposes. The military assignment  is associated with attempts to sow panic, damage small Armenian  groups, and destroy communication systems. There is also a political  purpose, which is due to the desire of Ilham Aliyev to hang out  Azerbaijani flags wherever possible. But such a tactic will not bring  serious results to the enemy.

In any case, Artsrun Hovhannisyan called on the Armenian public to  abandon excessive enthusiasm, since the enemy still maintains some  attack potential. Even the use of sabotage groups, however, is also  dangerous. "We must be constantly alert, organized, prepared and  armed. This war is not easy, "said the representative of the RA  Ministry of Defense.

He stated that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces suffered more than  sensitive losses in ground equipment, emphasizing that the shock  corps and brigades created by Azerbaijan were supposed to pass 15-20  km a day, but this did not happen. At the beginning of hostilities,  the enemy had 2-3 shock fists, which were concentrated in different  directions of the front line. These fists are crushed, which means  the collapse of the blitzkrieg, but a broken ridge does not mean the  destruction of the enemy. He begins to rebuild and rebuild his  tactics. In the valley of the Araks River, they failed to carry out a  blitzkrieg, and now the enemy, who has a quantitative advantage, is  gradually resorting to the tactics of squeezing out. But this fist  has worn out, since it is not inexhaustible either. As a result, the  enemy began to carry out tactics using sabotage groups.

Sooner or later, as the representative of the RA Defense Ministry  noted, the Azerbaijani public itself will begin to demand from Aliyev  accurate data on the dead and answers to questions. "As for us, our  position is more than clear and simple - we defend our home. And this  resource is growing every day. Our will is growing, which cannot be  said about the enemy," Artsrun Hovhannisyan said.
