NKR Defense Ministry: Ten Azeri soldiers killed, no losses on the Armenian side

Nagorno Karabakh has dismissed reports by the Azerbaijani side.

“The statement of the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, claiming that seven Armenian servicemen were killed as a result of targeted strikes of their armed forces does not correspond to reality,” the NKR Defense Ministry said in a statement.

“The Ministry declares that Defense Army divisions resorted to punitive steps in response to Azerbaijani attacks, leaving more than ten Azeri soldiers killed and many wounded in the direction of Akna,” the statement reads.

The Defense Ministry added its armed forces incurred no losses.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
