Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 14
By Samir Ali – Trend:
Two Armenian servicemen suffered firearms injuries due to negligence while on duty. The news was spread by Armenians on social media.
One social media user wrote that two Armenian servicemen, who were on duty in a settlement in Madaghiz District in the Azerbaijani territories occupied by Armenia, suffered gunshot wounds. Charents Nazaryan and Armen Arakelyan claim they were injured due to negligence when they were reloading their weapons after returning from duty. They were taken to a medical unit.
The incident is reportedly being investigated by army officers, which very often leads to concealment of facts.
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 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations. Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
