The Azerbaijani Armed Forces have targeted a Russian post on Armenia’s border with Iran, the WarGonzo Telegram Channel reported on October 29.
The Russian border guards directorate in Armenia, 4,500-man strong, along with the Armenian border guards is responsible for the protection of the Soviet-era border of Armenia with Turkey and Iran.
According to WarGonzo, the Russian post was targeted with at least four shells. No human losses were reported as a result of the attack.
In a statement, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan denied attacking any post on the Armenian-Iranian border. The ministry said such claims are “complete misinformation,” accusing Armenian forces of targeting Azerbaijan’s border with Iran.
“We reiterate that we do not have any military objectives in Armenia,” the statement reads.
The Ministries of Defense of Russia and Armenia have not released an official comment on the matter, so far. False information are usually dismissed within a few hours.
If confirmed, the attack will be a violation of Armenia’s sovereignty and an aggression against the Russian military. Azerbaijan could face serious consequences.
