Hovhannisyan: Karabakh army has destroyed most Azeri subversive groups

PanARMENIAN.Net - Almost all of Azerbaijan's subversive groups have been destroyed after infiltrating Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) villages, according to Armenian Defense Ministry representative Artsrun Hovhannisyan.

Hovhannisyan said Friday, October 23 that the settlement of Shekher in the south of the front has been cleared of Azerbaijani elements, but work is underway in some other parts.

The Azerbaijani forces continued the hostilities in the frontline on Friday, also bombarding civilian settlements, including the capital Stepanakert, the towns of Martuni and Martakert, Berdzor and adjacent villages.

The Azerbaijani troops made several attempts to attack in the direction of Vorotan river but were thrown back, and were forced to flee when their armoured vehicles were gone, Hovhannisyan added.

The military official also revealed that the Armenian side will unveil a map to provide information about the situation on the front.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
