Information spread on Armenian social networks about the alleged killing of an Azerbaijani serviceman is false and baseless, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense told APA on Tuesday.
No Azerbaijani serviceman, named Natig Gurbanov, serves in the position as Armenians claim, the defense ministry stated.
Reports have surfaced on Armenian social networks about the alleged killing of an Azerbaijani serviceman by Armenian armed forces. The serviceman is reported to be Natig Gurbanov.
Armenia’s use of such misinformation as part of its propaganda seems to be a last resort, according to the ministry.
“Following numerous unsuccessful attempts, the Armenian side is seeking to be a “hero” on paper on in the virtual space,” the Azerbaijani MoD stressed.
The ministry added that the Armenian armed forces lost six of its servicemen on 16-17 June.
“Now the enemy is reporting its numerous wounded soldiers on separate days giving different explanations so as to keep the public calm,” said the ministry.
