Armenia attempted frontline provocation, says Azerbaijan
Armenian army attempted to infiltrate through the Azerbaijani positions along the line of contact on the night from Feb. 24 to Feb. 25, said the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry Feb. 25.
The Armenian side attempted to seize favorable positions on the Khojavand-Fuzuli part of the frontline, said the ministry, adding heavy battles took place between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops.
The Armenian side’s large-scale provocation attempt was timely detected and resolutely prevented, said the ministry.
“Azerbaijani military units courageously prevented the attacks and the Armenian side was forced to retreat,” according to the Defense Ministry.
Azerbaijan has casualties as a result of the battles, said the ministry.
The Armenian side, which didn’t succeed in moving forward, continues heavy artillery shelling of Azerbaijani positions.
The ministry added that adequate response measures are being taken against the Armenian fire positions and force concentration zones.
