YEREVAN. – Azerbaijan fired at its own troops that were leaving their positions.
Artsrun Hovhannisyan, the press secretary of the Minister of Defense of Armenia, wrote about the aforementioned on his Facebook account.
“In the Mataghis [village] sector, they [i.e. the Azerbaijanis] are removing, from the surroundings and intermediates of their own [military] positions, the corpses of the soldiers destroyed by their barring troops,” Hovhannisyan wrote. “They shot twice from the rear at their own troops which, under the pressure of Armenian [army] divisions, were leaving the positions.”
The situation at the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone dramatically escalated in the early morning hours on April 2. From regular shootings and frequent sabotage-reconnaissance attempts, Azerbaijan switched to large-scale attacks all along the Karabakh-Azerbaijan Line of Contact, using a variety of weaponry as well as artillery, armored vehicles, and air force. Both sides have suffered casualties.
