YEREVAN—Another Armenian soldier was killed by Azeri snipers Thursday, this time near the Chinari Village in the Tavoush region of Armenia, reported Armenia’s Ministry of Defense.
The soldier, Albert Adibekyan, 20, died of a bullet wound to his head.
Armenia’s Defense Ministry spokesperson, David Karapetyan, said that this latest violence by the Azeri Armed Forces “will receive the adequate response.”
Karapetyan said that “the command of the Azerbaijani armed forces will be forced to bear responsibility for its actions.”
The Azerbaijani Armed Forces have been staging war games and military exercises on the Nagorno-Karabakh-Azerbaijan border since earlier this week.
