As of 21:00, the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border remains tense. The Ministry of Defence

The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Armenia reported that as of 21:00 on September 13, the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border remains tense. 

"Nevertheless, the intensity of the shelling of Armenian positions, settlements, and civil infrastructures, as well as the fire intensity of the positional battles in the direction of Inner Hand, Verin Shorzha, Artanish, and Sotk, has significantly weakened. The Armed Forces of the Republic of Armenia continue fully fulfilling the combat tasks set before it, showing the necessary resistance to the enemy.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan, continuing its practice of blatant falsehood, trying to justify the large-scale aggression against the sovereign territory of the Republic of Armenia, issued a statement that the armed forces of the Republic of Armenia violated the agreement to establish a cease-fire today, starting at 09:00, by shelling the Azerbaijani positions.

This statement of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan is a clear nonsense, because since midnight, the units of the Azerbaijani armed forces have not stopped shelling Armenian positions, settlements and civil infrastructures for a single minute.

This lie once again proves that Azerbaijan's military-political leadership deeply disregards the opinion of the international community, spreading open lies about Armenia's allegedly aggressive actions. The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Armenia declares that it exclusively responded to the large-scale aggression unleashed by official Baku.
