The information spread by Armenian Defense Ministry officials on the number of casualties about Azerbaijan Army is baseless and does not reflect reality. This is aimed at reducing to some extend 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 armored vehicles, 15 OSA anti-aircraft missile systems, 18 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), 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 direction.
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 the 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.
