The battles continue, they are local, not intensive, but they are persistent. This is what representative of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia Artsrun Hovhannisyan said during today’s briefing.
Hovhannisyan added that all day long the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan and their supporting terrorist groups continued various operations in the direction of the units deployed along the length of the border of Armenia and from north to south of Artsakh.
Large-scale hostilities took place in the direction of Berdzor and in the southern sector. Despite its efforts, the adversary failed to move towards Berdzor since the Armenian units succeeded in improving their positions. There were mainly artillery battles in the northern direction (in the direction of Martakert and towards the north). “During the day, you saw evidence of the adversary’s barbaric acts and shelling of settlements. There are victims and injured in Shushi and Stepanakert. A maternity hospital and other buildings were shelled. The Ministries of Foreign Affairs of Armenia and Artsakh have issued statements on this,” Hovhannisyan emphasized.
Overall, the intensity of fire and the scales and dynamics of hostilities have decreased.
