OguzTV: An Azerbaijani soldier wounded in a border clash with Armenian forces has died in hospital, the country’s defense ministry said on Tuesday.
Elvin Ahmedov was hurt during a “provocation” by the Armenian army, the ministry added, but did not provide information on when and where the soldier was injured.
The ministry said that despite all medical efforts, the soldier could not be saved and conveyed condolences to his family.
Clashes in the occupied Karabakh region, which pro-Armenian militia took over in 1993, are nothing new.
In April 2016, more than 270 military personnel lost their lives in the worst-ever breach of a 1994 treaty between the sides, according to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.
Three UN Security Council Resolutions (853, 874 and 884), and United Nations General Assembly Resolutions 19/13 and 57/298 refer to Karabakh as part of Azerbaijan. The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe refers to the region as being occupied by Armenian forces.
