Azerbaijani defense ministry on another Armenia’s provocation
The Gaymagli and Kamarli villages of the Qazakh district and the Kohanabi, Agbulag, and Aghdam villages of Azerbaijan's Tovuz district were fired on by the Armenian armed forces from points located near the Berd and Noyemberyan districts from guns of different calibers. As a result, civilian facilities in the settlements, sown areas and private farms were damaged, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said, commenting on the information of the Armenian media that allegedly the Azerbaijani armed forces were shelling Armenian villages located near the state border.
"This kind of news published by the Armenian government is aimed at deceiving different countries in the military alliance by bringing them to its ugly adventure and justify its provocations against Azerbaijani civilians residing in border villages," APA cited the Defense Ministry as saying.
According to the ministry, to prevent this provocation the Azerbaijani armed forces took immediate counter measures by suppressing the Armenian armed forces’ shelling in that direction.
The Defense Ministry added that the enemy was silenced immediately with retaliatory fire.
The ministry stressed that Yerevan's criminal-political regime is fully responsible for the tension and the consequences of the situation.
