The Defense Ministry of Armenia refutes reports in the Hraparak daily that high-ranking army officers were allegedly barred from going to combat positions in Syunik Province during the November 16 Azerbaijani attack.

"One of the media outlets has reported that “during the recent hostilities in Syunik, officers with the rank higher than major were allegedly not allowed to go up to the positions – the hotspots of the operations.” This information has nothing to do with reality. We once again strongly urge you to refrain from spreading disinformation," the ministry said in a statement on Friday.

“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
