Artsakh Defense Ministry: Azerbaijan shells its own positions (video)

“Azerbaijani troops today took actions that can in no way fit the limits of rationality after deliberately escalating the situation and taking various provocative measures along the Line of Contact in the recent days,”the Artsakh Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

“The Azerbaijani forces used 60 mm mortars as they shelled their own positions from 12:19 to 13:32 today, which resulted in blasts at Seysulan-Yarimsha section of the frontline.

The incident comes to proves that either the military staff of the opposite camp is not aware of their professional responsibilities, or there is no vertical management in the Azerbaijani military and any commander can make a decision to launch an operation along the frontline, or, if not so, the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan is paving the way with such insidious moves for future provocations,” the Ministry said.

The Defense Ministry informs that the Armenian side has strongly observed the ceasefire regime throughout the day.
