STEPANAKERT. – Late Thursday night, the Prosecutor General and the Deputy Prosecutor General of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) left for the scene of the incident in Nor Shen village of the Martuni region, and they met with the head of this community, Gevorg Harutyunyan, and the military, Armenian News- has learned from the Artsakh Prosecutor General's Office. The latter added as follows, in particular:

As a result of the discussions on the spot, it turned out that the provocative actions from the Azerbaijani military outpost located only 400 meters away from the Armenian combat position had actually started on Wednesday.

For a long time on the day of this incident, the military positions of Artsakh were openly and directly targeted by Azerbaijan.

On Thursday, the Azerbaijani side targeted the tent of the Armenian servicemen—and with a larger caliber weapon—, as a result of which there are six wounded Armenian soldiers, and doctors say two of them are in severe condition.

The lives of these wounded were saved thanks to the unprecedented operative work of the mayor of Nor Shen and the military.

Criminal and legal actions are being taken by law enforcement agencies to find out the circumstances behind this incident.

Also, provocative actions—in the form of shooting from small-caliber weapons—were carried out from the Azerbaijani military positions located near the Harav and Myurishen villages of the Martuni region.

Immediately after the incident, the Russian peacekeepers went to the sources of tension, after which these shootings stopped.

Recent events show that the Azerbaijani side tries—by the provocative actions in the Artsakh-Azerbaijani contact areas—to create panic among the Artsakh civilian population, and Aram Tepnants, who was carrying out agricultural work in Martakert city, was also killed for the implementation of this.
