Another Armenian soldier was reported killed on Thursday evening (13 June) on the line of contact in the Karabakh conflict zone.
The soldier, a member of the defence forces of the self-declared Nagorno-Karabakh Republic was named as Artyom Khachatryan. He was twenty years old. The incident was reported to have happened at 17.05 on the northern sector of the line of contact.
This is the fourth person reportedly killed in incidents between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces on the line of contact in the Karabakh conflict zone in the last two weeks in what appear to be tit-for-tat actions.
