Six Karabakh militaries wounded near Nor Shen village

Azerbaijani militaries have attacked the positions of the Karabakh Army near the village of Nor Shen; six servicemen were seriously wounded, the Nagorno-Karabakh Ombudsperson has informed.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on October 14, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defence (MoD) announced the death of its serviceman as a result of a sniper's shot made from the responsibility zone of Russian peacemakers. The MoD has treated the incident as a terror act.

In the evening on October 14, the positions of the Karabakh Army stationed near the Nor Shen community in the Martuni District were attacked; six servicemen were wounded; all of them are now in a military hospital, Gegam Stepanyan, the Nagorno-Karabakh Ombudsperson, told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

"Two of them are in grave condition; the state of four others is assessed by doctors as moderately grave. The Azerbaijani side is periodically shelling army positions and dwelling settlements; this is the second case when servicemen were wounded. A few days ago, a similar incident was fixed near the village of Shosh, Askeran District: an Armenian serviceman was wounded by shelling from the Azerbaijani side," Mr Stepanyan has stated.

In its turn, the Azerbaijani MoD has stated its non-involvement in the incident: according to its version, in the territory controlled by the Russian peacemakers, the shootout occurred among Armenian military servicemen.
