On October 14, the Azerbaijani armed force has targeted the military equipment on combat alert in the territory of the Republic of Armenia adjacent to the border with Qaravachar. Shushan Stepanyan, spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense of Armenia, stated this on Facebook Wednesday morning.
“The attack was carried out based on the mere assumption that the subject equipment was allegedly going to strike at Azerbaijan’s civilian settlements. It goes without question that this allegation is devoid of any basis. In actuality, the politico-military leadership of that country avails itself the right to target military equipment on combat duty in the territory of Armenia on sheer assumptions only. Once again reiterating that this far not a single missile, shell or projectile has been fired in the direction of Azerbaijan, we concurrently state that within the same logic the Armenian Armed Forces henceforth preserve the right to target any military installations and combat movements in the territory of Azerbaijan.
The whole responsibility for altering the zone and logic of military operations lies with the politico-military leadership of Azerbaijan. Fortunately, no killed or wounded are reported,” Stepanyan added.
