Azerbaijan accuses Armenia of attacking its positions in four regions

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry accused Armenia of attacking its positions in Karabakh.

The official statement of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan reports that the Armenian military attacked the positions of Azerbaijani servicemen in the Kalbajar, Gadabay, Tovuz and Lachin regions. Against this background, Armenia was threatened in Baku with serious consequences. This means that the conflict in the region may flare up with renewed vigor.

“Over the past day, the positions of the Azerbaijani army were fired upon by the Armenian armed formations eight times, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan reported. According to the information, seven of them occurred as a result of continuous fire from small arms of various calibers on the positions of the Azerbaijani army located in the Kalbajar, Gadabay, Tovuz and Lachin regions from enemy positions located in the Basarkechar, Chemberek, Tovuzgala and Gorus regions of the Azerbaijani-Armenian state border., - reports the Azerbaijani edition of Haqqin.az.

Despite the rather serious accusations, the Armenian side categorically denies the incidents of shelling.

“The message spread by the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan that the units of the RA Armed Forces opened fire in the direction of Azerbaijani positions on different sections of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border is another misinformation. The situation on the border with Azerbaijan is relatively stable and is under the full control of the RA Armed Forces.”, - reports the Ministry of Defense of Armenia.

The Russian side has not yet commented on the current situation, however, at the moment there are significant forces of the Azerbaijani army in the region, which threatens with a new escalation.
