Over the evening of October 29th, Armenia’s side claimed that several successful operations had been carried out against the Azerbaijani armed forces in Nagorno-Karabakh.
“During the night, units of the Artsakh defense Army continued to conduct reconnaissance and fire operations in the areas where opponent groups are located, as a result of which a large amount of ammunition and foemen personnel were destroyed. After midnight, the opponent forces tried to launch a new attack in the South-Eastern direction, which was stopped by the Artsakh army. Opponent forces tried to succeed, including in the Northern part of the front line, which was also stopped. Here the opponent troops suffered heavy losses. The opponent continued to attack peaceful settlements. Currently, operations are underway to search for and destroy opponent groups,” the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Artsakh said.
What this means is that the Azerbaijani forces are actually much further along the way than Armenia actually admits, and are, in fact, near Shusha.
“Today, the opponent launched an attack in the Northern direction earlier than usual, but was pushed back, leaving dozens of dead bodies on the battlefield. Artsrun Hovhannisyan.”
A video was also released:

The Azerbaijan side claimed that it also had success in its operations, and it is evident that it is likely true.
“The Azerbaijan Army continues to take measures against the enemy.”
Armenian attempts to attack in several directions of the front during the day on October 29 were reportedly prevented. The Armenian forces were forced to retreat, suffering heavy losses in combat vehicles and personnel.
“Due to the retaliatory actions, another high-ranking Armenian serviceman who committed a war crime was killed. Thus, the deputy commander of the 1st combined arms army, colonel Victor Arustamyan was killed as a result of firing at a convoy of vehicles in the defensive line of the 18th motorized rifle division of the Armenian armed forces.”
Notably, there were explosions in Barda, and Armenia’s side claimed that it was Syrian militants who carried it out.
Azerbaijan claimed that it was a Smerch MLRS, and that it was destroyed, with a video to go along with it.
Various Armenian equipment was also reportedly destroyed.
