Lieutenant Colonel Anar Eyvazov: Passing off the enemy’s reconnaissance and sabotage group acts as engineering work is nothing more than a timid attempt to justify themselves
Baku, May 27, AZERTAC
“The Armenian side once again spread misinformation in order to cover up the provocations committed by the reconnaissance-sabotage group on May 27 at about 03:00 in Kalbajar district of the Armenian-Azerbaijani state border,” spokesperson for Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry Lieutenant Colonel Anar Eyvazov told AZERTAC.
“Armenian soldiers were disarmed in the territory of Yukhari Ayrim village of Kalbajar. At the same time, the enemy has assembled its forces including tank formations in the frontline.
Armenians are passing off the sabotage group, which was attempting to mine our territory and to commit sabotage, as engineers and sappers. If so, then what kind of engineering work can Armenian military engineers do in the territory of Azerbaijan?
Anyone who has just a little knowledge of military affairs understands that engineering work is not done by small groups. Such groups are part of the reconnaissance-sabotage detachments, and it is clear that they invaded our territory to commit provocations. Their purpose was to mine the supply routes in the rear of our forces serving on the border. So that the forces moving along the supply routes were blown up by a mine, as a result of which there would be casualties among the personnel of our units,” Lieutenant Colonel Eyvazov said.
