There were cases when the opponent injured military personnel when direct military operations were not conducted or the military personnel were not on combat duty, said Armenia’s deputy defense minister Gabriel Balayan at the Armenian parliament on Friday.
His remarks came during the meeting session of the standing committee on defense and security.
According to him, such incidents occur either as a result of shelling of the Armenian territory by the opponent or its sabotage and reconnaissance operations.
Defense ministry’s department of social protection is currently estimating the damage caused to the life or health of the soldier as a result of the opponents offensive operations since 2008, which resulted in nine injuries, he said.
According to the draft law presented, these cases are also set to be included in the list of cases subject to compensation for damage. And it is also planned to correct a number of technical errors.
The standing committee gave a positive conclusion to the draft law.
