An armed incident occurred today on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border in the Tovuz region. According to the press secretary of the Minister of Defense of Armenia – Shushan Stepanyan, Azerbaijani troops made an attempt to violate the state border in a UAZ car. 

Casualties are feared in Azerbaijan and Armenia in the border clash, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said. In a statement, it said that the Armenian army fired at positions held by Azerbaijan in the Tovuz region.

Shushan said – after a warning from the Armenian side, the Azerbaijani servicemen, left the car and returned to their positions. However, the incident is not over yet.

After a short time, the Azerbaijani military opened artillery fire in an attempt to capture Armenian positions. However, in return fire, the enemy was thrown back, having suffered casualties, said Shushan.

There are no losses from the Armenian side while three Azerbaijani soldiers were killed and four others injured in the border clash.

In a statement, Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said the Armenian army had fired at positions held by Azerbaijan in the northwestern Tovuz region.

“The attack by Armenia, with the use of artillery, against the positions of the armed forces of Azerbaijan, along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border, constitutes aggression, an act of the use of force, and another provocation,” said Hikmet Hajiyev, foreign policy chief for Azerbaijan’s presidency.

He pointed out that Armenia launched the “offensive and a provocation during the time when the international community is fighting the COVID-19,” bashing Armenia’s support of a UN initiative for global cease-fire amid the pandemic as “nothing but hypocrisy.”
