Armenian armed forces retaliate, cause losses to enemy – Artsrun Hovhannisyan


Spokesman for Armenia’s Ministry of Defense Artsrun Hovhannisyan, in a Facebook message, reports that the Armenian side had to retaliate against the Azerbaijani armed forces, causing losses to them.

“On July 24 evening, from 7:00pm, the enemy resumed intense ceasefire violations, particularly on the border of Artsakh and of the Tavush region. Shooting continued throughout the night. Both arms of different calibers and 60mm and 82mm mortars were used. In all, more than 160 ceasefire violations were recorded. The Artsakh military units retaliated when necessary and the enemy suffered losses. The Armenian side did not suffer any losses. The situation is relatively calm on the border,” Mr Hovhannisyan wrote.

Azerbaijan has been disseminating disinformation on the situation on the border for several days.

Mr Hovhannisyan is urging the people not to succumb to such provocations and trust only the official information by the Armenian side.
