Azerbaijan keeps concealing real number of its casualties

PanARMENIAN.Net - Being unable to accept the reality, the Azerbaijani leadership is engaged in wishful thinking, the Defense Ministry of the Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh) Republic said.

“Escalating tensions at the contact line by undertaking numerous attacks, Azerbaijan tries to present itself as a victim of aggression on the one hand and spread lies about losses of the Artsakh army on the other hand,” the ministry said in a statement.

However, the reality is quite different, the ministry said.

Thus, from July 28 to Aug 3, 2014, the Azeri army made over 5 cross-border attempts in various directions of the contact line.

-On July 28, as a result of a cross-border attempt in Martakert direction, 2 Azerbaijani soldiers were killed. On the same day, 1 Azeri saboteur was killed near the contact line in Martuni direction.

-On July 31, the Armenian armed forces eliminated 2 Azeri saboteurs in Gyulistan direction

-On Aug 1 night, 9 saboteurs were killed and 7 more wounded as a result of cross-border attempt in Askeran direction. At the same time, 6 were killed and 7 injured in Martakert direction while 3 were killed and 4 injured in Martuni direction.

-On Aug 2, the sabotage attempt in Askeran direction of the contact line resulted in 1 death.

In all, Azerbaijani casualties reached at least 25 and about 30 were wounded.

However, Azerbaijan officially announced about the death of 13 servicemen, concealing information about the others.
