A soldier of the Armenian Armed Forces, who was gravely injured on July 14, while defending the border against brazen Azerbaijani attacks on Armenia’s Tavush Province, died on Thursday at the Central Clinic Military Hospital.
Armenia’s Defense Ministry said Private Artur Muradyan (born 2001) was severely injured at a maintenance station of the military units in the northeastern Armenia and was transferred to the Military Hospital in critical condition.
Muradyan’s death brings the total Armenian fatalities to five. Last week, the Defense Ministry reported that four soldiers of Armenia’s Armed Forces died during the heavy fighting on the Armenia-Azerbaijan border. Major Garush Hambardzumyan, Captain Sos Elbakyan and privates Smbat Gabrielyan and Grisha Matevosyan died last week during the clashes.
