The Azerbaijani side fired more than 600 shots from weapons of different caliber in the direction of Armenian positions last night.
The front divisions of the NKR Defense Army resorted to targeted retaliatory measures to silence the activeness of the rival.
The NKR Ministry of Defense reports that private of the Defense Army Hovhannes Harutyunyan, born in 1997, was fatally wounded because of violating the rules of use of weapons in one of the military units located in the southern direction of the Defense Army.
Investigation into the details of the incident is under way.
The NKR Defense Army said in a statement it shares the sorrow of the heavy loss and expresses condolences to the families and friends of the soldier.
