An Armenian soldier was killed in the country’s eastern border zone in a sniper attack launched by Azerbaijan’s military, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense says on Facebook.
“Unfortunately, today we also suffered a loss. Private Karen P Hovhannisyan was killed by an Azerbaijani sniper. We have to state with a deep grief that nothing will go unanswered,” reads the post shared by Artsrun Hovhannisyan.
In a press release earlier today, the Ministry reported two border infiltration attempts by Azerbaijan’s armed forces.
“Armenia’s political-military leadership has repeatedly warned that the aspirations and statements to achieve a military solution to the conflict are a self-deception, with the subversive acts stemming from such a logic being fraught with unforeseeable consequences for Azerbaijan’s military,” read the statement.
