Karabakh: 29 Armenians KIA, 28 missing, 101 wounded

Nagorno-Karabakh’s Defense Ministry updated the data on casualties in the Armenian forces as relative calm was established in the zone of conflict with Azerbaijan following a bilateral agreement earlier on Tuesday.

It said that 29 Armenian servicemen have been killed in action, and 28 others gone missing since the start of hostilities on April 2. As many as 101 Armenian servicemen were wounded in the clashes. The fighting accompanied by shelling of towns and villages and commando raids has also left four Karabakh Armenian civilians, including a 12-year-old boy, dead. Also, seven people were reportedly killed when a drone hit a bus transporting Armenian volunteers traveling to join regular troops at the front.

The Armenian military in Karabakh lost 14 tanks in the fighting. At the same time, the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Ministry says Azerbaijan lost 24 tanks, 4 armored vehicles, 2 helicopters, 12 unmanned aerial vehicles, one Grad multiple rocket launcher system and other military hardware.

The Defense Ministry in Baku says that 31 Azerbaijani soldiers were killed in the frontline clashes with Armenian forces.

The Karabakh military authorities insist that no high ground or military post early under Armenian control was lost in the battles.
