The Azerbaijani armed forces in their latest aggression shelled high-voltage power lines that Armenia uses to supply electricity to Iran. They were damaged, Minister of Territorial Administration and Infrastructure Gnel Sanosyan stated at the meeting with accredited ambassadors in Armenia in Kut village of Gegharkunik region today.

According to him, Armenia exports quite a large amount of electricity to Iran.

"It may seem that the electric lines were hit by artillery fire by accident, but the Azerbaijani Armed Forces did not allow specialists to fix the damage for 12 hours," the minister said.

According to him, excessive electricity forced Armenia to halve the capacity of the nuclear power plant, as well as the Yerevan Thermal Power Plant and several other power plants.

The entire energy system of the republic was deliberately disrupted.

"We were not allowed to restore it for hours. This is concrete proof that the civilian infrastructure was clearly in the crosshairs," Sanosyan said.

He also added that several shells fell into the Kechut reservoir. Nevertheless, damage was avoided.
