NKR Deputy DM: Azerbaijani army incapable of a large-scale operation

  • by David Stepanyan

  • Saturday, August 9, 20:18

 Deputy Defense Minister of NKR, Head of the Union of Artsakh Freedom-Fighters, Major General Samvel Karapetyan has disseminated a statement suggesting that unlike Artsakh's Defense Army, the Azerbaijani army is incapable of any large-scale operation, even the most promising one. 

"The current tension is unprecedented since the ceasefire of 1994. The logic of the sabotage attempts in the period from July 28 up to August 5 shows that the enemy uses the tactics of 'offensive reconnaissance' to reveal our defense power and its own army's readiness for a resumed war. The enemy nearly every day attempts to penetrate into our positions and faces strong resistance every time. The raiders are thrown back suffering technical and human losses," the general says.

As for the involvement of the Artsakh war veterans in the defense actions on the border, Karapetyan said the freedom-fighters have always fought next to the army. He said hundreds of freedom-fighters have left to the front line to support our soldiers in the most dangerous areas of the Line of Contact.

"If the NKR Defense Minister was unable to fulfill its military tasks, the general mobilization would have been announced. There is no need in mobilization of forces, as our soldiers fulfill their tasks brilliantly.  Freedom-fighters and the Artsdakh war veterans have left to the front line to encourage soldiers and to keep the army morale high. We ought to dictate our will to the enemy and not to allow it achieve even insignificant success. Every soldier ought to fulfill his duty with high conscience and responsibility. Our army proves this every day and every hour," Karapetyan said.
