Reports, spread by Azerbaijani media, claiming the units of the Artsakh Defense Army have opened fire from a vehicle toward the Azerbaijani positions are another disinformation and do not correspond to reality, the press department at the Artsakh Republic Ministry of Defense said in a statement.
"In reality, the Azerbaijani military forces opened irregular fire toward a village from positions located near Karmir Shuka settlement in Artsakh's Martuni region, as a result of which a car belonging to a Artsakh resident parked near a kindergarten was incinerated. The command of the Russian peacekeeping contingent were notified about the incident and measures were taken to make the Azerbaijani side adhere to the ceasefire regime," the ministry said.
“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
