STEPANAKERT (RFE/RL)—Military authorities in Stepanakert have denied Azerbaijani reports claiming that two Armenian unmanned aircraft were shot down near the line of contact in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone.
Nagorno-Karabakh’s Defense Ministry said late on Thursday that the information released by the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan, “does not correspond to reality.”
Azerbaijan made similar claims earlier in July that it has brought down two Armenian drones. Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh both denied the claims.
Stepanakert also denied last month that two Armenian tanks were destroyed by anti-tank mines during military drills in the conflict zone. Azerbaijan also claimed that there were casualties among the crews of the tanks, but that also has not been confirmed.
