The adversary [Azerbaijan] fired gunshots with great intensity in the direction of Sotk village and tried to advance, but was thwarted. This is what head of Geghamasar village Hakob Avetyan said during a conversation with Armenian News-NEWS.am.
“At this moment, I can’t say whether the shooting continues or not, but it seems to me that the adversary won’t achieve success. The shootings were with great intensity. They tried to advance in the direction of the military posts of Sotk, but the soldiers managed to not let them advance,” Avetyan stated, adding that even though there were also gunshots fired in the direction of Kut, the situation was calmed down quickly.
Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia had reported that the units of the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan have made an attack on the Armenian combat positions deployed in the eastern direction of the Armenian Azerbaijani border. After suffering casualties, the adversary was thwarted to the starting positions.
The Azerbaijani Armed Forces fired at the same section in Gegharkunik Province yesterday and the night before that, there was exchange of fire, and only after the response operations of the Armenian side did the firing stop. Yesterday two Armenian soldiers received slight injuries.
