The Armenian Ministry of Defense confirmed, today, Thursday, that tension continues in the Karabakh region, and that the shelling with artillery and light weapons continues.
The Armenian Defense Ministry spokeswoman, Shushan Stepanyan, said on her Facebook page that the situation “remains tense on all lines of contact between Karabakh and Azerbaijan,” adding that the tactical and operational situation has not changed.
She stressed that some areas are still witnessing artillery and light weapons shelling, noting that “the defense units of Karabakh thwarted the attempt of the Azerbaijani forces advance and changing their positions.”
The Karabakh region, which is disputed between Armenia and Azerbaijan, has been witnessing battles since last Sunday, in which hundreds of people have died, including civilians.
Yerevan and Baku refuse to stop the fighting despite international calls for a ceasefire and for them to come to the negotiating table.
