Ararat Governor’s Office denies reports claiming Azerbaijani forces fired at direction of Armash, Surenavan communities




YEREVAN, JULY 26, ARMENPRESS. The Office of the Governor of Armenia’s Ararat province denied the media reports claiming that the Azerbaijani forces have opened fire at the direction of Armash and Surenavan communities.

“The media report according to which the Azerbaijani forces have fired shots at the direction of Armash and Surenavan communities of Ararat province have nothing to do with the reality.

On July 26, starting from 11:30, the Azerbaijani forces violated the ceasefire in the direction of the Ararat section of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, in particular in Yeraskh, by opening fire from various caliber firearms at the Armenian positions. The Armenian side took countermeasures. At this moment the situation is calm.

We call on the media representatives to refrain from spreading reports relating to the border situation which have nothing to do with the reality and spread panic”, the statement says.

“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
