The ARF Western Region Central Committee welcomes the heroic efforts of the Artsakh Defense Forces to free and repatriate the bodies of three slain soldiers who were shot down by Azerbaijan on November 12.
The government of Azerbaijan continually refused to return the remains of Maj. Sergey Sahakyan, Sr. Lt. Sargis Nazaryan, and Lt. Azat Sahakyan, in gross violation of international human rights norms and agreements. This futile attempt to demoralize the Armenian forces and people was met with a bold operation, executed with unwavering bravery and overpowering strength.
With this effort, the Artsakh Defense Forces further demonstrated their readiness and courage in thwarting any Azeri uses of force and violence.
We stand proud of those who protect our homeland. Glory to the Armenian Armed
