MoD: Information spread by Armenia about the alleged shooting at fire truck by our units around Shusha is false

Azerbaijan's Ministry of Defense clarified the information spread by the Armenian press that the fire truck which arrived on August 17 at 20:40 for the purpose of extinguishing the fire was allegedly subjected to fire by the units of the Azerbaijan Army, the Ministry of Defense told ONA.

"The fire starting at about 18:00 in the dry pasture area in the foothills near the settlement of Gaybali in Azerbaijan, where Russian peacekeepers are temporarily stationed, was visually noticed by our units stationed at heights.

Russian peacekeepers were immediately informed to prevent the fire from spreading and extinguishing it in time.

We hereby state that the information spread by the opposing side, especially about the alleged shooting at fire truck by our units in this direction is false, and such fact has not been registered by the Russian peacekeepers either," noted Ministry.
