A little while ago, a clash took place between the police and Armenia’s Syunik Province residents who were trying to reach the Syunik gate early Monday morning to prevent Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan from entering the province.

From the night, 2,000 officers from the police troops moved to Syunik gates near Zanger where the people of Syunik were to carry out their protest.

The police have gathered a large number of forces by buses, not allowing the citizens to reach Zanger.

The people of Goris town complain that their right to free movement is being violated, whereas they are not doing anything illegal.

At some point when the people of Syunik tried to reopen the road and move forward, a clash took place between the police and the local residents. The citizens were trying to walk up, but the police did not allow it, and this turned into a scuffle.

To note, Goris Mayor Arush Arushanyan, who had previously announced the Goris residents’ protest not to allow Pashinyan's entry to Syunik, was detained early Monday morning.
