PanARMENIAN.Net – The Defense Ministry on June 27 and 28 denied reports from Baku accusing the Armenian army of firing on the Azerbaijani positions.
The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry claimed that their positions bordering the provinces of Tavush and Gegharkunik were targeted by the Armenian armed forces.
The Armenian side weighed in on both accusations, maintaining that the army hasn’t fired a single shot, even refraining from returning shooting from the Azerbaijani positions.
Azerbaijani forces violated Armenia’s border in several sections in the provinces of Syunik and Gegharkunik on May 12 and 13 and are still refusing to withdraw their troops from the area. One Armenian serviceman was killed in Azerbaijan’s shooting on May 25, six troops were captured on May 27, although four of them have already returned home.
