STEPANAKERT, YEREVAN—Azerbaijani forces on Wednesday killed two Karabakh soldiers in clashes along the Artsakh-Azerbaijan border as military escalation continued along what is called the Line of Contact.
“Azerbaijani armed forces attempted to attack Armenia’s defensive positions” at the Karabakh frontline, the Artsakh Defense Ministry said in a statement.
Karabakh Army soldier Nahapet Asatrian, 33, was identified as one of the soldiers who died in combat.
In a separate incident across the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, 35-year-old Armenian army soldier Arman Udumian, “died of mortal wounds as Azerbaijan violated ceasefire,” Armenia’s Defense Ministry said in a statement.
Two Karabakh soldiers were reportedly killed in similar incidents on Tuesday and Saturday.
