The Armenian side is trying to conceal its losses by spreading misinformation
The information spread by Armenian Defense Ministry officials on the number of casualties of the Azerbaijan Army is baseless and does not reflect reality. This is aimed at reducing anxiety among the Armenian population and chaos in the army, in the face of Azerbaijan army successes.
According to intelligence information obtained at the end of the day, the Armenian army suffered serious losses as a result of the combat operations. Thus, 22 enemy tanks and other armoured vehicles, 15 OSA anti-aircraft missile systems, 18 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and 8 artillery pieces were destroyed. The enemy suffered more than 550 casualties, including dead and wounded. 3 weapons and ammunition depots have been destroyed in different directions.
The commander of the enemy airborne battalion Lieutenant Colonel Lernik Vardanyan was killed in the battles in the direction of Talysh village, and his unit's personnel suffered heavy losses.
Due to a large number of wounded in the enemy's army, there is a shortage of beds in military and civilian hospitals and reserve blood deficiency in the blood bank.
As always, the Armenian side hides the real number of combat casualties in its army from the public.
