Armenia's MoD announces death of eight Azerbaijani soldiers

During the last 10 days, eight Azerbaijani servicemen perished in the Karabakh conflict zone, Vigen Sarkisyan, the Armenian Defence Minister, has stated. The Azerbaijani Ministry of Defence (MoD) called this statement a lie.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today Azerbaijan has stated 146 bombardments by the Armenian party during the last 24 hours. On June 24, the MoD of Nagorno-Karabakh reported that Azerbaijani militaries had broken the ceasefire for more than 400 times during a week.

The Armenian Defence Minister has noted that his MoD has data on other Azerbaijani losses, but they are not confirmed.

"Sarkisyan should better dealt with deaths in his own army. It is the Armenian party that hides its losses at the frontline other army deaths," the APA quotes the press service of the Azerbaijani MoD.
