Lieutenant colonel Eldar Sabiroghlu, spokesman for Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense, told APA that violation of the ceasefire by Armenian Armed Forces since early morning escalated to a tension at several points of the frontline.

“The exchange of fire is still ongoing. You see, Armenians are trying to divert the attention of their citizens and the world community from the internal and domestic unrest and bloody actions. That is the reason why Armenia resorted to this. Azerbaijani armed forces courageously and bravely repelled the enemy, prevented their attacks and gave deserving retaliation. 12 enemy soldiers were killed and 15 wounded. Three soldiers of Azerbaijani army were shot dead and one wounded,” he added.

Today’s incident, as the both sides say, has been heavier than most of the skirmishes that intermittently break out along a cease-fire line.
