Karabakh troops destroy four Azerbaijani D-30 howitzers

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army has destroyed four Azerbaijani D-30 howitzers with their crews and ammunition, Armenian Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan said on Thursday, October 8.

"Precision artillery strikes in the southern direction inflict great losses on enemy manpower," Stepanyan said on Facebook.

"Armenian units recently destroyed four enemy D-30 howitzers with their crews and ammunition, not allowing them to occupy firing positions."

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.
