Three Armenian servicemen have been killed in military actions unleashed by Azerbaijan in the direction of Tavush, the Ministry of Defense reports.
The divisions of RA Armed Forces neutralized the assault by the Azeri troops, forcing the rival back to its initial positions. The adversary retreated, incurring losses.
Unfortunately, the Defense Ministry reports losses on the Armenian side, as well. “Senior Lieutenant Shavarsh Melikyan, privates Edgar Narayan and Erik Abovyan were killed in clashes,” Defense Ministry Spokesman Artsrun Hovhannisyan said in a Facebook post.
The Ministry shares the sorrow of the heavy loss and expresses its condolences to the relatives of the fallen soldiers.
The Defense Ministry possesses undeniable proofs of violation of the Armenian state border by the Azeri side. The military –political leadership of Azerbaijan bears full responsibility for the provocation, the Ministry said.
