Seyran Ohanyan: The Armenian party will mine all possible ways of penetration from Azerbaijan to Karvachar

 The Armenian party will mine all possible ways of penetration from Azerbaijan to Karvachar, Armenia's Defense Minister, Seyran Ohanyan, said at today's session of the government when asked by Prime Minister Hovik Abrahamyan to comment on the situation at the Armenian-Azerbaijani border for the last period of time.

He said that since 1994 when the truce agreement was signed, the adversary has been violating cease-fire regime at the line of contact between the armed forces of Nagornyy Karabakh and Azerbaijan from time to time. He also added that for the last period of time, such cases often happen in the northern direction of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, in the bordering regions of Tavush region.

Among other things, Seyran Ohanyan underscored that the operations aimed at the discovering of the saboteurs have been fully completed and the penetrated persons have been discovered. He also added that a member of the sabotage group detained last, is suspected in murder of the 17 year old resident of Karvachar.   

'Today, the command of the Defense Army of Nagorno Karabakh takes relevant measures to strengthen service on the first line. Special work has been conducting with the population to assure them that the army has been implementing its tasks", - Ohanyan concluded. 

To remind, Azeris made new attempts to mount a sabotage attack on the Armenian-NKR section of the border (near Karvachar) last week. The Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Ministry has told ArmInfo that they revealed and neutralized all members of the Azerbaijani subversive group. Some members of the group were captured, and others escaped. As reported earlier, the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army released a photo of Gyulin Shahbaz Jalaloghlu (born in 1968), the captured member of the Azerbaijani sabotage and intelligence team.  Defense Minister Seyran Ohanyan informed on Saturday that the Armenian soldiers killed an Azerbaijani saboteur while neutralizing the subversive group on Friday.  But an Armenian officer, major Sarkis Abrahamyan (born in 1972) was killed and an Armenian woman, Karina Davtyan (born in 1977) was wounded. The NKR Prosecutor General's Office has filed a lawsuit regarding Azerbaijani raiders Gyulin Shahbaz Jalaloghlu (born in 1968) and Dilham Gardashhan (born in 1960) for illegal crossing of the border.
