Armenian Military Claims Azeri Border ‘Provocation=?UTF-8?B?4oCZ?=

The Armenian military said on Wednesday that its forces opened fire to repel a dozen Azerbaijani soldiers who approached its frontline positions at a western section of Armenia’s border with Azerbaijan.

The Defense Ministry in Yerevan claimed that the soldiers were in an “inadequate condition” and had an “irregular appearance.”

“They ignored warning shots and continued to advance in a manner not characteristic of military servicemen,” read a ministry statement. “In order to prevent the provocation, Armenian border troops opened fire, as a result of which the enemy may have suffered casualties.”

“Full responsibility for the incident falls on the Azerbaijani side,” added the statement.

There was no immediate reaction to these claims from official Baku. Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry did not report ceasefire violations along the Armenian-Azerbaijani frontier on Wednesday.
