Private of the NKR Defense Army Varazdat Khachatryan, born in 1995, was wounded as a result of shelling from the Azerbaijani side at about 18:45, November 5.
According to a report from the NKR Ministry of Defense, about 180 cases of ceasefire violation by the Azerbaijani side were registered at the line of contact between the armed forces of Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan last night.
The rival used weapons of different caliber as it fired more than 3,500 shots in the direction of the Armenian positions.
“Taking into consideration that complex geopolitical situation and in an attempt to foil the ongoing state-building processes in Armenia and Artsakh, the rival continues to destabilize the situation all along the line of contact, intensively violating the ceasefire regime with the use of artillery weapons of different caliber, mortars and rocket launchers,” the Ministry said in a statement.
The NKR Defense Ministry declared that “the rival’s adventurist policy will not go unpunished, and the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan carries full responsibility for the whole situation.”
