PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijani troops attempted a subversive attack near the village of Chinari in Armenia's Tavush province in the early hours of Thursday, December 29, a Defense Ministry spokesman said in a Facebook post.
"The Armenian Armed Forces started a fight against the rival," Artsrun Hovhannisyan said.
"Sniper rifles and grenade launchers are currently being used, the Armenian troops completely control the situation, thwarting the Azeris' attacks."
