PanARMENIAN.Net - The Azerbaijani Armed Forces deploy their TOS-1A heavy artillery systems in villages and open fire from there on the Armenian troops in Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh), according to footage published earlier by the Armenian Defense Ministry, thus turning their civilian population into a human shield.
The Artsakh Infocenter, meanwhile, has identified the exact location of the Azerbaijani military equipment as the village of Leninavan, Martakert region of Karabakh, occupied in 1991-1994.
