Town chief: Azerbaijani military fires on Armenian village

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Azerbaijani Armed Forces fired on the Armenian border village of Kut in Gegharkunik province on Friday, August 28 evening.

The administrative head of the village Sima Chitchyan told a Sputnik Armenia that the fire came at 22:00-23 00, also targeting the positions of the Armenian units deployed in the area.

No casualties were reported, the situation is calm at the moment, Chitchyan noted.

Azerbaijani forces violated Armenia’s border in several sections in the provinces of Syunik and Gegharkunik on May 12 and 13 and are still refusing to withdraw their troops from the area. Since then, almost a dozen Armenian servicemen have been killed in Azerbaijan’s shooting, a dozen others have been wounded, while six troops were captured on May 27, although four of them have already returned home.
