President of the National Assembly of Armenia, Ararat Mirzoyan, made a post on his Facebook page, referring to the new accomplishment by the Armenian Armed Forces.
“Chinari [village] can no longer be fired at [from Azerbaijan]; the safety of the [natural] gas pipeline entering Armenia is also ensured,” he wrote. “Glory to the Armenian soldier. Glory to the Armenian Army.”
Artsrun Hovhannisyan, Spokesperson of the Ministry of Defense, had confirmed this information. He had noted that as a result of precise operations, the natural gas pipeline entering Armenia from Georgia, the Armenia-Georgia highway, and several roads leading to some Azerbaijani villages are now controlled by Armenian troops.
“If we [Armenia] don’t make uproar—like Azerbaijan, it doesn’t mean that we don’t carry out improvement of [our military] positions,” he had written, in particular. “It has been a constant process at various sectors.”
Hovhannisyan had added that these operations and advancement by the Armenian Armed Forces were unexpected for the adversary.
