Armenian Armed Forces have the situation on the border under control

The Armenian Armed Forces have the situation along the border with Azerbaijan under control and takes retaliatory steps only in case of target-oriented shootings, the Defense Ministry says in a statement. 

According to operative reports by the Armenian Armed Forces and NKR Defense Army, on 2-3 August, the enemy breached the ceasefire on the Armenian-Azerbaijani and NKR-Azerbaijan border 893 times, including 839 times on the Line of Contact with Karabakh. Azerbaijani Armed Forces fired 8926 shots at the Armenian positions. The Armenian side fired 3015 shots in response. 

In the light of the ongoing upsurge in the tension, the Defense Ministry of Armenia reiterates that the tense situation is a result of adventurism and groundless revengeful policy of Azerbaijan's military and political leadership. The Ministry expresses regret over casualties on both sides and lays the responsibility for what is taking place on the border on the military and political leadership of Azerbaijan. The Armenian Defense Ministry is sure that the Azerbaijani leadership does not care for the lives of their own soldiers.

"We reiterate that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces act contrary to the peace negotiations within the OSCE MG, which is pregnant with resumption of large-scale military actions.  The Ministry warns Baku that in case of further sabotage attempts by Azerbaijani armed forces, the Armenian armed forces will have to take tougher measures to punish the senseless and illogic displays of rancor by the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry leadership," the Defense Ministry says in the statement.
