Defense Ministry: Member of reconnaissance-sabotage group of Armenian armed forces detained
“On August 16, at about 11:15, in order to commit provocative terrorist operations a reconnaissance-sabotage group of the Armenian armed forces attempted to advance into the territory of Azerbaijan, using the gaps between the combat positions of the Azerbaijan Army stationed in the direction of the Istisu settlement of the Kalbajar district,” state the Ministry of Defense, according to Azerbaijan in Focus, reporting AzerTac.
“Due to the vigilance of the Azerbaijan Army Units, with the support of firepower, the provocation of the Armenian servicemen was suppressed. As a result, one member of the sabotage group was wounded and detained by the Azerbaijani servicemen. Other members of the reconnaissance-sabotage group were forced to retreat.
Information about the detained member of the group is currently being clarified. Additional information will be provided to the public,” the ministry said.
