Armenian military cross into territory of Azerbaijan

 Azerbaijan's Defence Ministry on Wednesday said around 40 Armenian military personnel had crossed into Azerbaijani territory on Tuesday evening and were forced to retreat.

According to the ministry, Azerbaijan has expelled around 40 Armenian forces that illegally entered 400 meters into the country’s territory.

The incident occurred in the direction of Kalbajar region’s Armudlu village on the border on June 1 at 8 PM.

The units of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces did not use any weapons during the operation.

The ministry described the incident as "another provocation" and warned that Armenia carries full responsibility for this provocation.

"The incident demonstrates once again that Armenia aims to aggravate the situation along the state border of the two countries, contrary to the calls on of the international community and the Azerbaijani side to resolve border issues through negotiations and dialogue," the statement reads.
