Head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia Edward Asrian told French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna about the scale of the enemy’s penetration into Armenia’s sovereign territory as a result of military operations on September 13-14.

The total area of infiltration is 60.06 square kilometers with a front of about 11 km and a depth of about 8 km. According to our assessment, the aim of the Azerbaijani armed forces was to attack the city of Jarmuk and inflict serious economic damage on the Republic of Armenia.
