On October 8, Armenian forces repelled two attacks by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces on the southern part of the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

The first attack started at 8:30 AM local time by a battalion-sized Azerbaijani force, according to Shushan Stepanyan, Press Secretary of the Ministry of Defense of Armenia. The attack was repelled by Armenian forces.

More than 20 Azerbaijani service members were allegedly killed in the failed attack. Three military vehicles were also destroyed.

At around 2 PM, the Azerbaijani forces launched a second attack on the Nagorno-Karabakh’s southern part, this time from two directions. However, Armenian forces repelled the attack, killing several Azerbaijani soldiers and destroying nine armored vehicles.

The ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan has not announced any new gains in Nagorno-Karabakh, yet. This indicates that the Armenian claims are truthful.

Azerbaijani forces captured a number of positions in Nagorno-Karabakh in the last few days. The situation changed on October 7. Armenian troops, backed by volunteers, carried out a number of successful counter-attacks in the region.
