One of the divisions of the Azerbaijani armed forces stationed in Nakhijevan attempted to violate the state border with Armenia at about 22:30, October 1, the Armenian Ministry of Defense said in a statement.
The incident took place at the south-western sector of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, in the direction of Yeraskh.
The Armenian armed forces were quick to detect the attack in the area between the military positions of the two countries and prevented the infringement attempt. The rival retreated as a result of exchange of fire.
The Ministry of Defense warns that any attempt to escalate the situation at the shared border in the direction of Nakhijevan will be strictly punished.
