On 26 November, some Armenian media outlets, apparently the first one being News.am, reported on a military incursion by Azeri forces in northeastern Martakert region of Nagorno Karabakh. The report stated that two military units consisting of 14 and 20 troops respectivally, attempted a nocturnal raid on Armenian positions, and were eventually repelled with one wounded.
The spokesperson for Armenia’s Defence ministry, Artsrun Hovhannisyan, refuted these claims, stating that the news of an incursion does not correspond to the reality on the ground. Likewise, Azeri military blog Ordu.az also touched upon the issue repeating the latter’s statement.
No further news on the incident was made available besides the information provided. Due to a lack of further open-source information, Nagorno Karabakh Observer did not identify the veracity of the reported incident.
