After short artillery preparation in the northern direction, the enemy’s forces tried to strike several positions with infantry forces, were immediately destroyed, suffered serious casualties and were thwarted, leaving a significant number of bodies on the battlefield. This is what representative of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia Artsrun Hovhannisyan said during today’s press conference.
Hovhannisyan stated that battles also went on in the southern direction all day today, north from Araks River. “The Armenian Armed Forces have certain advantages in terms of positions, but the battles continued. I can’t state anything in particular right now,” he said.
Hovhannisyan added that the enemy’s forces tried to break through the military front in the direction of Martuni-Tchartar through rather intensive military operations. “Our Armed Forces remained strong, and there is no change in terms of positions, but the battles are persistent. Significant groups have been neutralized and a military base has been neutralized in the direction of villages near Shushi. The battles continue,” he said.
