STEPANAKERT—The Artsakh Defense Army said Friday that about 80 cases of ceasefire violations by Azerbaijan were registered at the line of contact between the armed forces of Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan on Thursday night. The adversary fired more than 4,500 shots from weapons of different caliber at Armenian positions.
The adversary also used large caliber weapons as they fired in the direction of Shahumyan. The Armenian forces had to resort to retaliatory actions to suppress the Azeris’ attacks, as a result of which at least three Azeri soldiers were killed.
The NKR armed forces also undertook preventive measures in the northeastern part of the line of contact. According to reports, four soldiers from the Azeri Special Forces were killed.
The Armenian side incurred no losses, the Artsakh Defense Ministry said. “The frontline troops of the Defense Army confidently continue with their military duty all along the line of contact,” the Ministry said.
