Azerbaijan said on Thursday it had shot down an Armenian drone near Nagorno-Karabakh, a report dismissed by Armenia as “absurd.”
The Azeri Defense Ministry said the drone had been shot down over Azeri territory but Artsrun Hovhannisyan, Spokesman for the Armenian Defense Ministry, denied the report.
“Nagorno-Karabakh officially refutes this information. It is absurd,” he said.
“It is clear that after heacy losses, the Azerbaijani side wishes to present achievements as big as possible. But even lies should be reasonable. I will not be surprised if tomorrow they down an Armenian nuclear submarine in the air or catch an intercontinental ballistic missile,” Artsrun Hovhannisyan said in a Facebook post.
