Armenia reports shootout with Azerbaijani troops at volatile border

The Armenian military says one of its soldiers has been injured during a shootout with Azerbaijani troops in an eastern border area, the latest incident since a halt in fierce clashes between the two neighbors over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh region last year.

Samvel Asatryan, the chief of staff of Armenia’s army, said the injury took place on Tuesday as Azerbaijani forces “opened fire near the village of Verin Zhorzha” in Armenia’s eastern province of Gegarkunik.

The Armenian army official said the soldier suffered a “minor” injury and that two Azerbaijani troops were also wounded in the clash.

Baku dismissed Yerevan’s report of the clash and injuries, and suspected an internal incident between Armenian troops.
