Armenia refutes Azerbaijan's claims of shooting town drone

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan's claims of downing an Armenian drone are false, Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan has said.

According to Stepanyan, photos released by Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry and allegedly featuring an X-55 UAV of the Armenian Armed Forces are also false.

"No UAV of #Armenia’s Armed Forces has been downed," Stepanyan added.

On July 12, Azerbaijan launched two failed infiltration attempts on the border with Armenia whose troops immediately identified the saboteurs and thwarted them back to their positions. Since the next morning, the Azerbaijani military has been firing on the Armenian positions, also using large caliber grenade launchers and combat drones to target civilian homes in several border settlements. Four servicemen of the Armenian army have been killed, 20 others have been wounded, while Azerbaijan has reported 11 deaths.

In the wee hours of July 16, Azerbaijani troops launched another infiltration attempt, but were again thwarted back to their posts.
