Armenian armed outfits assault Azerbaijani civilian convoy


(MENAFN) The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry announced that on Wednesday, Oct. 13 an Azerbaijani civilian group of vehicles transporting non-military goods for constructing civil infrastructure was attacked from "illegal Armenian armed detachments" close to the Gozlukorpu settlement in the Kalbajar region of Karabakh.

The ministry noted in a report that the convoy, which was heading from the Sugovushan settlement of the Tartar region to the Kalbajar region, was assaulted at approximately 2 p.m. (1000GMT) local time.

The report said that because of the firing, the vehicle of the Military Automobile Inspectorate of the Military Police of the Azerbaijan Army, which was at the front of the convoy, was harmed, but there were no casualties no injuries.

The ministry stressed that it is "inadmissible" for Armenian armed detachments to shoot at a convoy of civilian cars joined by Russian peacekeepers in order to repair civilian infrastructure in the lands freed from the nearly three-decade occupation by Armenian forces.
