On 26 March, the Azeri Defence Ministry has reported the death of serviceman Allaz Allazov from cross-border fire on the line-of-contact near the town of Fizuli in southern Nagorno Karabakh.
According to the Armenian military news portal Razm.info, Allazov was from the village of Yuxarı Salahlı in the region of Qazax, near the border with Georgia.
This comes as a rare statement from Azeri military authorities who strictly limit news on losses. The last official statement regarding a combat loss was on 23 May 2018, regarding Adil Tartarov who was killed on the border with Armenia and Nakhichevan.
It is worth mentioning that on the same day, Armenian conscript Ara Arakelyan was killed in “undetermined circumstances” at a military base in the northern region of Martakert.
