Early this morning, the Azerbaijani armed forces once again launched offensives from the north and south.
Our army engaged in particularly pitched battles with the adversary in the south before pushing them back towards their original battle lines.
Yesterday, our air defense managed to down a number of Azerbaijani UAVs, including several Turkish-manufactured Bayraktar UCAVs.
The current situation remains tense as hostilities continue, however, the level of intensity has decreased compared to during the day. Azerbaijani commando units have managed in some places to infiltrate behind Armenian lines in small groups for photo opportunities in long-abandoned settlements simulating the capture of territory designed for consumption by a domestic audience. However, this propaganda footage has also been spread in Armenian circles.
The situation remains stable and in our control.
The proliferation of diversionary actions by Azerbaijan is in no way indicative of any battlefield success or advances by their troops.
