Azerbaijan Arrests Former Defense Minister For ‘Spreading False Info’ About Number Of Azeri Deaths.

The National Security Service of Azerbaijan has arrested former Defense Minister Rahim Gaziyev, who said yesterday that “the Azerbaijani side has 12 casualties” during the hostilities on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, per Massis Post.

A statement issued by the Azerbaijani NSS claimed that the high-ranking ex-military “deliberately spread false information, his actions were aimed at weakening Azerbaijan’s defense capabilities, openly calling for riots and forcible seizure of state power.”

Azerbaijan’s government and defense ministry are known for hiding deaths and lowering casualty numbers when reporting to their public.
