Azerbaijani troops attempt to attack but flee the battlefield near Jebrail

PanARMENIAN.Net - The situation in the Artsakh-Azerbaijan conflict zone remained stable and tense overnight, Armenian Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan said Thursday, October 8 morning.

"At 08:30 am, the enemy attempted to assault from the assembly area in the south, but fled the battlefield in the outskirts of Jebrail losing three pieces of military equipment and leaving more than twenty dead and wounded behind," Stepanyan said on Facebook.

Nagorno-Karabakh capital Stepanakert came under Azerbaijan's rocket fire overnight, the Artsakh infocenter reports.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey, launched a large-scale offensive against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27, shelling Armenian positions and civilian settlements with large caliber weapons and rocket systems. Armenia and Karabakh have introduced martial law and total mobilization. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. International and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.

Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support Karabakh amid Azerbaijan's aggression.
