Baku, September 13, AZERTAC

In the last hours of September 12, units of the Armenian Armed Forces carried out a large-scale act of sabotage in the directions of Dashkasan, Kalbajar and Lachin, on the border between Azerbaijan and Armenia, AZERTAC told the press service of the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.

According to the ministry, the sabotage groups of the Armenian Armed Forces, acting in the dark, used the mountainous terrain of the territory and the existing ravines in different directions to undermine the areas between the positions of the units of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces. and supply routes.

Following urgent measures taken by Azerbaijani units to immediately thwart these acts, a battle broke out.

Certain positions, shelters and bases of the Azerbaijani army on the territory of the districts of Dashkasan, Kalbajar and Lachin came under fire with various types of weapons, including mortars, by units of the Armenian Armed Forces located in the direction of Basarkecher, Istisu, Garakilsa and Colonies of Gorus. As a result, there are casualties among Azerbaijani personnel and damage to military infrastructure.

“In order to prevent the provocation of the Armenian armed forces and military threats against the territory and sovereignty of Azerbaijan, and to ensure the safety of our military personnel, including civilian workers involved in infrastructure works on the territory of the Kalbajar and Lachin districts, resolved response measures are taken by units of the Azerbaijani army deployed in this direction.

Necessary measures are taken to silence the firing points of the Armenian Armed Forces and prevent the expansion of the scale of the military conflict.

There are casualties among Armenian Armed Forces personnel and combat equipment involved in sabotage operations,” the ministry said.

“In general, the provocations of the Armenian armed forces in the direction of the Lachin, Gadabay, Dashkasan and Kalbajar districts of the state border, as well as the firing at the positions of the Azerbaijani army in these districts with various types of weapons , have been quite intense and systematic over the past month.At the same time, observations show that Armenia had concentrated its offensive weapons, heavy artillery and personnel along the border with Azerbaijan.

All this is further proof of the stated fact that Armenia is preparing for a full-scale military provocation.

By resorting to such actions, Armenia aims to slow down the implementation of large-scale civil infrastructure projects that Azerbaijan is carrying out in the border districts liberated from occupation and to fuel tensions near the border with Azerbaijan.

We declare once again that the responsibility for the provocation, the standoff and the casualties rests entirely with the military and political leadership of Armenia.

Further information on the situation will be provided in due course,” the ministry added.
