PanARMENIAN.Net - An Azeri saboteur was killed during an attempt to cross into Karabakh in the Karvachar area, Defence Minister stated during a military parade to mark the 17th anniversary the 4th army corps formation.

According to Seyran Ohanyan, an Armenian officer was killed and a woman was injured during the shootout.

On July 10, Armenian forces curbed a sabotage attempt as Azeris tried to infiltrate the border in the Nagorno Karabakh Republic’s Karvachar area, the NKR defense army press service reported. As a result of prompt actions, the group was discovered, with several saboteurs arrested, while the others fled the site.

No injuries on Armenian side were reported.

Later, the press service of the Nagorno Karabakh Defense Ministry has unveiled photos of the captured Azerbaijani saboteur.

“Unwilling to accept reality, Azerbaijani propaganda denies any information that reveals its true face. Since reliability of the photos we had released was disputed, we also present the photos of Guliyev Shahbaz Jalaloglu, a captured member of the subversive group, which we have taken ourselves,” a statement by the NKR Defense Ministry said.

Armenian military serviceman Movses Gasparyan, 20, received a fatal bullet wound in an Azeri sniper attack on July 11.

Gasparyan was fatally wounded at a military base stationed in the south-eastern region of the line of contact between Artsakh and Azerbaijani armed forces.
