The 17th day of the Patriotic War also dawned with the news about Armenia firing at civilians. Inspired to retaliate on the field of honour, our valiant Army destroyed a large number of enemy manpower, 3 BM-21 Grad self-propelled multiple rocket launchers, 1 Tor-M2KM short-range air defence missile system, 1 ZSU-23-4 Shilka lightly armoured, self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon system, 2 PDM-2’s, 3 2A36 Giatsint-B towed guns, 1 KS-19 air defence gun, 1 D-20 towed gun-howitzer, 3 UAVs and several cars. The personnel of the 5th infantry regiment of the Armenian Armed Forces was crushed, personnel of the 1st motor-rifle regiment ambushed and moving vehicles disabled. Towards the evening we could finally see the footage we had all been waiting for, as the video of the liberated Hadrut settlement was released.
We would continue receiving such war tides for another 27 days.
