On March 4, the Azerbaijanis had fired at Norshen village of the Martuni region of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), and urged—through a loudspeaker—the local residents to leave the area.

In a conversation with Armenian News-NEWS.am Monday, Norshen's prefect Gevorg Harutyunyan said that shots are often heard, but the aforesaid calls from the loudspeaker were made for the first time on March 4.

"They [i.e., the Azerbaijanis] had come, fired in the air several times, put a loudspeaker on and said, 'Leave the area! Don’t work!' The actions of the adversary lasted about two hours. We informed the Russian peacekeepers [about it], after which they [i.e., the Azerbaijanis]] stopped their actions. There is no panic among the villagers. At any rate, there is fear; they simply have already gotten used to it," Harutyunyan said.

The head of the village added that Norshen's kindergarten and school are still operating.

"The school is in the direction of the adversary's position, the distance is one kilometer," he said.

To note, shots were also fired also at Artsakh’s Khramort village, but these shots were silenced by the Armenian position holders.

And Khramort mayor Zorik Abrahamyan told us Monday that the situation is calm at the moment in the village.
