Armenian armed forces committed another provocation against Azerbaijan on April 2, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said.
The president made the remarks during the meeting of the Security Council on April 2.
Armenian armed forces attacked Azerbaijani positions near the contact line of troops and shelled the residential areas, which resulted in the deaths of Azerbaijani servicemen and civilians, President Aliyev said.
The head of state expressed his condolonces to the bereaved families and wished the wounded a speedy recovery.
The president said he instructed the Cabinet of Ministers to prepare proposals for the provision of financial assistance to the bereaved families and the Defense Ministry to prepare proposals to award the servicemen who distinguished themselves in the battles and fought heroically for their homeland.
Armenia regularly resorts to such provocations, according to the president.
“A few days ago, Armenian army committed similar provocation on the Gazakh sector of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. Armenian saboteurs attacked our positions, killing two soldiers,” President Aliyev said, noting that the enemy has given an appropriate response.
