In recent days, Armenia’s media outlets, referring to the country’s official bodies, have been disseminating provocative information aimed at misleading the public and escalating the tension on the contact line of troops, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense said in a statement on April 9, APA reports.  


On April 8 and 9, Armenian media outlets reported that units of the Azerbaijani Army allegedly shelled Armenia’s territory on the directions of the Nakhchivan, Gazakh and Tovuz districts of the Azerbaijani-Armenian state border, said the statement.


The Azerbaijani Army fully abides by the ceasefire along the state border with Armenia, the Defense Ministry stated, adding. “Armenian media reports are untrue and pave the way for subsequent provocations, and possibly, such information will be further spread out.”


Armenia’s provocations will be resolutely suppressed and the enemy will get decisive and devastating retaliation, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry warned.
