Situation on Armenia-Azerbaijan border relatively calm overnight

The situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border remained relatively calm overnight, Defense Ministry spokeswoman Shushan Stepanyan said on Friday, July 31.

14 ceasefire violations by the Azerbaijani side – 155 shots overall – were registered throughout the night.

The situation on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan escalated on July 12, with Azerbaijan launching several unsuccessful infiltration attempts throughout the next week. The Azerbaijani military also used artillery and combat drones to target civilian homes in several border settlements in Armenia. Five servicemen of the Armenian army were killed, while Azerbaijan reported 12 deaths. In recent days, though, the situation has been relatively calm.
