    UPDATE

    POLITICS  15 June 2023 - 10:23

    As Caliber.Az was informed in the Border Service of Azerbaijan, on June 15, 2023, at 08:45 am, as a result of shelling from the territory of Armenia, a serviceman of the State Border Service of Azerbaijan, who served at the border checkpoint in Lachin, was wounded.

    The enemy's firing point was suppressed by return fire and the operational situation is under the control of our units, the State Border Service reported.

    The wounded soldier was given first aid and there is no threat to life.

    "The entire responsibility for this provocation lies with the military-political leadership of Armenia," the State Border Service stated.

    According to information received by Caliber.Az, early in the morning on June 15, the Armenian armed forces opened fire from a machine gun in the direction of the Lachin border checkpoint of Azerbaijan.

    The shelling was carried out from the Armenian post located in the opposite direction, exactly at the time of the daily ceremony of raising the state flag of Azerbaijan.

    As a result of enemy fire, a serviceman of the State Border Service of Azerbaijan was wounded. His condition is assessed as stable, and all necessary medical assistance is being provided.

    At the moment, the situation is under the control of our units. After the shelling, the Armenian military left their post.

    This egregious incident is an open manifestation of terrorism and aggression from Armenia's end. However, such crimes did not create problems for the functioning of the Lachin border control point, and Azerbaijan has enough resources to protect it.

    But it is obvious that the uninterrupted operation of the border checkpoint seriously worries the enemy.

    Additional information will be given.
