For about two days now, the fighting around Shushi has not stopped. Tonight, last night, quite heavy and intense battles took place in the settlements around Shushi, on the roads leading to Shushi, near Shushi, per Artsrun Hovhannisyan, Armenian Ministry of Defense.
“If May 8, 1992 was marked in the Armenian history as the day of the liberation of Shushi, then these passing days will enter as brilliant days of the defense of Shushi,” said Artsrun.
The “Gyorbagyor” military operation to destroy the opponent’s reconnaissance and sabotage tactical groups, mercenaries and bandits continues successfully. At the moment, the fighting is going on, but the strength has significantly weakened. On other fronts, relatively weak actions generally take place.” said Hovhannisyan.
“Our artillery, our infantry and our subdivisions worked miracles today. There are dozens, if not hundreds of corpses of the enemy forces, mercenaries left in the gorges near Shushi,” added Hovhannisyan.
“Today was one of the heroic days of Shushi’s defense. Shushi is ours. Shushi will not fall, no matter how strong Ilham Aliyev would long for it. The Armenian army will fight till the end,” concluded Hovhannisyan.
