YEREVAN—A female soldier of the Armenian Armed Forces shot and killed an Azerbaijani sniper commander during border gunfire that left four Azerbaijani soldiers dead, reported Armenia’s Defense Ministry spokesperson Arzrun Hovhannisyan, according to the Armenpress news agency.
The Defense Ministry reported that three Azerbaijani servicemen were killed in the Karvachar region in the morning hours on Friday, while the commander of the Azerbaijani sniper unit was killed later in the southern border of Karabakh.
“The Azerbaijani side continues its brazen policy towards its own soldiers and their relatives. Today they lost 3 servicemen only during the daytime in the vicinity of Karvachar. A commander of a snipers’ group was shot dead from the well-aimed bullet of Armenian woman,” said Hovhannisyan.
“Let the Azerbaijani citizens know that the leadership of their country doesn’t only cause death of their sons, but also disrespects them,” added Hovhannisyan.
Earlier, two Armenian soldiers were killed during Azerbaijani attacks on several positions in the Berd area of Armenia’s northeastern Tavush province.
As of Friday afternoon, doctors at a Berd hospital were fighting for the life of another serviceman who was wounded in the attacks.
