Number of killed Nagorno-Karabakh soldiers rises to 1221

Today, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) of Nagorno-Karabakh has released a list with the names of more 44 killed military personnel.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today, the Ministry of Defence of Azerbaijan has announced that the Armenian troops left their positions in the area of Khodjavend (the Armenian name is Martuni, – note of the "Caucasian Knot"). A day earlier, on November 8, Ilham Aliev announced the capture of Shushi, a key city in Nagorno-Karabakh. The Azerbaijani troops entered Shushi, but received no reinforcements and had to retreat, the Ministry of Defence of Armenia claims.

Today, on its Facebook page, the MoD of Nagorno-Karabakh has released a list with the names of 44 military personnel of the Defence Army who "were killed in the battles for the defence of their homeland." Less than a quarter of the killed soldiers, 10 people, were born in 2000-2001, while the rest were older, with the oldest one born in 1964.

The MoD of Nagorno-Karabakh has not released lists of killed soldiers since November 2. In total, by November 2, the MoD of Nagorno-Karabakh reported about 1177 killed soldiers. Thus, their number has grown to 1221.
