Azerbaijani army units do not open fire at civilian infrastructure - defense ministry

The information spread by Armenian telegram channels about the alleged opening of fire in the direction of the Gorus region of the state border by units of the Azerbaijani army and the resulting damage to civilian infrastructure is not true, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan said in response to Trend's inquiry.

"The information spread by Armenia about the alleged shelling of the civilian population, facilities and infrastructure by the Azerbaijani army has nothing to do with reality.

This is another misinformation spread by the Armenian side. The countermeasures taken in response to Armenia's provocations are local and directed against legitimate military facilities that are firing points. The response measures are small-scale and targeted and aimed at ensuring the security of Azerbaijan's borders and stopping the provocations of Armenia.

Targeting civilian objects and innocent people is the standard military methodology used by the Armenian armed forces. During the 30-year occupation and 44-day Patriotic War, it was the Armenian side that deliberately and purposefully fired on Azerbaijani cities and civilians with ballistic missiles and cluster bombs," the ministry said.
