Azerbaijan conceals death of three soldiers

PanARMENIAN.Net - Senior Lieutenant of the Azerbaijani armed forces Aliyev Rahim Aydin oglu died on June 18, having been hit by a combat vehicle. On June 9, another serviceman from one of Qazakh military posts shot a fellow soldier dead, committing a suicide afterwards, a coordinator at opposition Meydan TV, Habib Abdullayev said.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, however, still conceals the fact of the three soldiers' deaths.

Abdullayev said, in particular, that Agazade Asiman Abdulla oglu killed contract serviceman Mustafayev Eleddin Xaliddin oglu during night hours, then committed a suicide himself.

Rahim's friends also confirmed his death but said they haven't seen the moment of Aliyev's falling under the vehicle and thus can't name the exact reason of his death.
