Armenia's Defense Ministry has refuted the Azeris' allegations that there was no shooting attack on their part on Friday morning and that it was just a skirmish between Armenian servicemen.
The Azeris began shooting at a military unit in Syunik region from the territory of Nakhchivan Autonomous Region on Friday morning. As a result, one Armenian serviceman was killed, one more wounded. The case is being investigated.
"This is an allegation aimed at covering one more violation of the cease-fire regime. This is their favorite method. I would be very much surprised if they admitted their guilt," Spokesman of Armenia's Defense Ministry Artsrun Hovhannisyan said, when asked by ArmInfo to comment on the Azeri Defense Ministry's report that there was no shooting on their part.
