Armenia says one of its soldiers has been killed on the noth eastern sector of the international border with Azerbaijan.

The deceased was named as Junior Sergeant Hovik Tamazyan.

The Ministry of Defense of Armenia said in a statement that in recent days Azerbaijan has become active in this section of the border and attempted to carry out reinforcement works, which led to an escalation.

Earlier, Azerbaijan reported an incident in the same location during which one of its soldiers was injured, but gave no more details.
