Azerbaijan accuses Armenia of a military provocation at Black Lake

About 60 Armenian soldiers tried to cut the lines of communication between the posts of the Azerbaijani army in the border area, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) of Azerbaijan claimed.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that on November 9, Azerbaijan accused Armenia of a shelling attack on engineering vehicles in the area of the border between the two countries. Workers who fell under fire were paving the road.

Today, the Azerbaijan’s MoD has announced that on November 9, about 60 servicemen of the Armenian Armed Forces moved in two military trucks towards Lake Garagol (Black Lake) in the Lachin District and occupied the road leading to the positions of the Azerbaijani army.

“In order to deliberately create a military confrontation, the Armenian side tried to fortify itself on the territory by blocking the road between the positions of the Azerbaijani army on the given section of the border, using baskets of metal structures,” the Azerbaijan’s MoD announced in its press release as translated from the Azerbaijani language by the “Caucasian Knot” correspondent.

In response, the military commanders quickly concentrated additional personnel and military vehicles in the area, the Azerbaijan’s MoD reported. “As a result of the measures taken, about 60 Armenian servicemen were cordoned off, all their actions were limited, and in the morning [of November 10], taking into account a request of the Russian side, the Azerbaijani armed forces let them return,” the Azerbaijan’s MoD announced in its press release. According to the Azerbaijani military officials, there are no losses on the Azerbaijani side.
