Early in the morning, after about an hour of intense shelling, the Azerbaijani army launched a large-scale offensive in the northern direction of Artsakh. Artsrun Hovhannisyan, a representative of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia, on Friday morning wrote this on his Facebook.
“Several times they tried to capture our positions by attacking but thanks to the courage and skills of the Armenian warriors, they were thrown back suffering considerably huge losses,” Hovhannisyan added.
On the night of October 15-16, the enemy opened intensive artillery fire in the direction of Karmir Shuka settlement of Martuni city, and in the morning in the direction of Berdashen community.
The settlements of Togh in Hadrut region, Tigranavan, Aygehovit and Aghavno settlements of Kashatagh region were also shelled.
