The Azerbaijani side resorted to provocative actions hours after failing to lead the OSCE monitoring mission to its frontlines. The rival shelled the military posts located in the eastern direction of the NKR Defense Army between 17:00 and 8:50 today, the NKR Defense Ministry reports.
The Azerbaijani forces used cannons and mortars of different calibers in the eastern and northern (Talish) directions.
The Armenian side reports no losses as a result of the heavy shelling.
The NKR Defense Ministry has declared that “the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan bears full responsibility for the provocative actions and their consequences.
“Should the provocations continues, the NKR Defense Army reserves the right to take relevant measures to ensure the security of Artsakh’s state border,” the Ministry said.
