Earlier, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan claimed that heavy human and material losses had been inflicted on the Armenian 6th Mountain Rifle Regiment, the 3rd Artillery Battery, the 22nd Special Forces group and the 178th independent Reconnaissance Battalion.
For the last two days, the fierce resistance of Armenian forces prevented Azerbaijani troops from making any gains in Nagorno-Karabakh.
Azerbaijani forces are currently situated less than 6 km to the south of the city of Shushi and at least 10 km away from Stepanakert city, the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh.
