Azerbaijani forces shell their own positions – Defense Army

YEREVAN, MARCH 19, ARMENPRESS. The Azerbaijani forces open fired on their own positions on May 19, “Armenpress” was informed from the press service of the Defense Ministry of the Republic of Artsakh.

“The armed forces of Azerbaijan undertook measures that can in no way be in the limits of rationality following the deliberate escalation of the situation and taking various provocative measures on Artsakh-Azerbaijan contact line in the recent days. The video recording devices installed on the front line have detected that the Azerbaijani side opened fire on its own positions from 60 mm mortars by preliminary information in the Seysulan-Yarmja section of the contact line at about 12:15-12:19 and 13:32-13:36, as a result of which explosions took place in the mentioned area.

This once again proves that either the military staff of the opposite camp is not aware of their professional responsibilities, or there is no vertical management and any commander on the front line has the opportunity to make a decision of launching an operation, or, if not so, the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan pays a way by such sneaky moves for its future provocations.

The Defense Ministry of the Republic of Artsakh informs that the Armenian side has respected the ceasefire regime and has taken no measure, particularly using large-caliber weapons”, reads the statements issued by Artsakh MoD.
