27 May 2017 - 20:16

There were no drastic changes in the operational situation along the line of contact between the Karabakh and Azerbaijani opposing forces, from May 21 to 27, informed the press service of the Republic of Artsakh Ministry of Defense (Nagorno-Karabakh Republic/NKR MOD).

During this time the Azerbaijani armed forces breached the truce more than 550 times, and with different-caliber shooting weapons. 

In addition, the adversary fired from mortars as well as rocket-propelled and automatic grenade launchers, in various sectors of the line of contact.

Furthermore, as a result of ceasefire violation by the Azerbaijani armed forces, NKR Defense Army serviceman Armen Harutyunyan (born in 1996) fell on Friday, at the protection area of a defense army unit that is located in the northern direction.

But the Artsakh defense army vanguard units took actions in response, and they continued confidently carrying out their military task.
