The Azerbaijani army also retaliated, the statement said:
“The Armenian armed forces are systematically firing at our positions, provoking our army to respond and trying to create a false opinion among the representatives of the European Union (EU) civilian mission operating on the border, trying to create artificial tension in the region.
We reiterate that the full responsibility for any provocations by Armenia and the resulting humanitarian casualties lies with the leadership in Yerevan.”
