Azerbaijan mobilizing troops, military equipment along Artsakh contact line

In the recent period, Azerbaijan has been mobilizing manpower and military equipment close to the Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) defense positions.

In a press statement released on Tuesday, the Artsakh Defense Ministry points to Azerbaijan’s evident activity in the information field in recent period as evidenced by the spread of various sorts of disinformation and propaganda footages.

"In an attempt to "properly" present the "achievements" of their armed forces to the domestic and foreign audiences, official Baku first started to circulate ungrounded information about the alleged liberation of 11,000 hectares in the section of Nakhichevan, and then posted online the footage of using Polonez multiple launch rocket system and Israeli-made LORA long-range artillery system," the statement reads.

"Notably, in parallel to this propaganda, active movements and mobilization of Azerbaijani troops and military equipment can be spotted in different sections of the Artsakh-Azerbaijan Line of Contact in recent days," the ministry stressed.

The Defense Army says it is keeping a watchful eye on Azerbaijan’s activities, taking necessary actions.
