The Armenian Ministry of Defense confirmed that two of its saboteurs had crossed into Azerbaijani territory, APA reports.
It had been denied a little while ago that the saboteurs penetrated Azerbaijani borders. However, the fact was acknowledged following the Azerbaijan State Security Service's statement.
Notably, last evening, a group of Armenian saboteurs attempted to cross Azerbaijan's state border in the direction of the Zangilan region. The Azerbaijan army neutralized the hostile sabotage-reconnaissance group, and two saboteurs were detained.
"Due to the vigilance of the military personnel on duty at the border checkpoint, the movement of the subversive group was promptly detected and necessary measures were undertaken. As a result, 2 military personnel of the Armenian Armed Forces were detained. Other members of the subversive group fled back, taking advantage of the difficult terrain of the area," Azerbaijan State Security Service told APA.
