Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan commented on the information disseminated by Armenian media about the losses of the Azerbaijani side.
“The Armenian Defense Ministry once again spread the absurd and illogical misinformation about the situation on the contact line on January 11-12”, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said.
“This information is nothing but Armenia’s attempt to blame the opposite side for its failures,” the Ministry said.
According to the report of the Armenian press, on January 11 firefight took place on the Armenian-Azerbaijani contact line. One Azerbaijani serviceman and one Armenian shepherd killed in shootout.
“Armenia lies to its people by spreading misinformation,” the Ministry said. “It is trying to mislead the world community. The Armenian defense ministry conducts a virtual battle with some “saboteurs”. Then, it supposedly creates the conditions to take ‘corpses remaining in the neutral zone’ on the basis of ‘compliance with international humanitarian law’. The information spread by Armenian media that Azerbaijani Army attempted to commit sabotage on the frontline and suffered losses is false: this is another lie and fraud of the enemy side. Members of the armed forces of Azerbaijan have not suffered any losses and our units fully control the operational situation on the contact line”.
