Expert: Armenian soldiers are major restraining factor for Azerbaijan

PanARMENIAN.Net - An Armenian political analyst is confident that Armenian soldiers are the main restraining factor for Azerbaijan.

Seeing no tactical or military sense in attacking a serviceman's car in Armenia’s Tavush province, Narek Galstyan named demoralization of the Armenian army as the key goal Azerbaijan pursued, with the opposite having happened.

According to the expert, Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev once again made an attempt to mobilize the country’s political forces to reinforce the “enemy image” and strengthen his regime.

On April 27, 4:15 am local time VAZ 2107 car belonging to an Armenian serviceman was shelled on the road to the village of Aygepar in Tavush province of Armenia. As a result, the driver and two other servicemen were wounded.

Despite the measures taken, the two servicemen died on the way to military hospital of Berd town, with another hospitalized.

A criminal case has been instigated under Article 104 of RA Criminal Code. Investigation is under way.

On April 25, ceasefire violation by Azerbaijani armed forces was registered in the north-eastern region of the contact line between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan.

The Azerbaijani side opened fire from various caliber weapons towards the Armenian positions in village of Doveg, Armenia’s Tavush province.

The shelling left the local kindergarten and a GAZ-53 truck damaged. The children and staff were evacuated for security purposes. As a result of retaliatory measures by the Armenian armed forces, the Azerbaijani side was forced to stop the fire.
