Video proof of subversive Armenian group blowing up on mine released (VIDEO)
Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb.4
By Ilkin Izzet - Trend:
Video footage showing how the servicemen of Armenian armed forces blew up on a mine, while trying to stage a provocation on the contact line of Azerbaijani and Armenian armies on Jan.31 has been released.
Armenian media reported that the video materials earlier spread on social media show that on Jan.31, six members of the intelligence group of Armenian armed forces got blown up by a mine, while trying to go through the mined area on the contact line of Azerbaijani and Armenian armies in the direction of Azerbaijani Gazakh district.
Azerbaijani Defense Ministry told Trend on Feb.4 that this video once again clearly backs up the information spread by the ministry on Jan.31 about the losses of Armenian armed forces while trying to stage a provocation on the contact line.
The Armenian Defense Ministry dismissed the information at the time.
"Armenian Defense Ministry attempted to hide this fact from the public, arguing that nothing like this has happened," Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said.
It is not the first time the Armenian Defense Ministry attempted to hide such facts from the public, according to Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.
The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the US are currently holding peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented the UN Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
