The Ministry of Defense clarified that the shelling was carried out from several positions from different types of small arms.

In March, the Azerbaijani military occupied the Armenian village of Parukh (Azerbaijani Farukh), which is in the zone of responsibility of Russian peacekeepers in Nagorno-Karabakh. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, one Armenian soldier was wounded.

In late May, the Armenian Defense Ministry reported that the Azerbaijani armed forces fired on a section of the joint border. As a result, the Armenian conscript received a gunshot wound, the Armenian military struck back. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan called the data on the wounding of the soldier a lie.

The day before, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev accused Armenia of refusing to fulfill its obligations under the ceasefire agreement in Nagorno-Karabakh. He noted that the Russian Ministry of Defense did not fulfill the promise to force the Armenian troops to leave the region.
