STEPANAKERT — Six Defense Army servicemen were wounded in Azerbaijani attack on Artsakh, two are in critical condition, Armenia’s Human Rights defender Arman Tatoyan informs.

“In the evening of October 14, the Azerbaijani armed forces opened fire at the positions of the Defense Army located in the eastern border section of the Republic of Artsakh, as a result of which 6 Armenian servicemen have received gunshot wounds. The Command of the Russian peacekeeping unit in Artsakh have immediately been informed about the incident”. Artsakh Defense Ministry said in a statement.

The incident was registered in Nor Shen community of Artsakh, in the immediate vicinity of which the positions of the Azerbaijani armed forces are located. Shots were fired in the direction of several other civilian settlements in the south of Artsakh, the Ombudsman said.

“This is a direct result of the genocidal, fascist policy of the Azerbaijani authorities. The presence of the Azerbaijani armed forces in the vicinity of Armenian civilian settlements is a serious threat to the security and peace of the people, a violation of their right to life..” Arman Tatoyan said in a Facebook post.

“Given that the positions of the Artsakh Defense Army in the immediate vicinity of Nor Shen and other communities protect the lives and safety of civilians, it is clear that the Azerbaijani armed forces are directly responsible for their criminal actions, that led to harm to the health of the soldiers,” he added.

  1. So much for those Russian “peacekeepers.”

    Azerbaijan is testing them and finds them to be pro-Tartar and weak.
