The patient is in stable condition, the "Sputnik-Armenia" reports, adding that he was wounded in the Tavush section of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border.

The "Caucasian Knot" has also reported that the State Frontier Service (SFS) of Azerbaijan has informed about an attack of saboteurs and a shelling attack on border positions, including from large-calibre firearms.
