    BAKU (Sputnik) – The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry has accused the Armenian armed forces of opening gunfire at the Azerbaijani military positions near the state border.

    "On June 17, at about 8:40 p.m. [16:40 GMT], from the positions located near the village of Kolagir in the Berd District the Armenian armed forces opened gunfire at the position of the Azerbaijani arm near the village of Garalar of the Tovuz  District," the Azerbaijani military said on Sunday.

    The incident resulted in no losses among the Azerbaijani forces.

    "The situation in the area is currently stable, the operational situation is controlled by our units," the  Azerbaijani Defense Ministry added.

    Baku and Yerevan are involved in a decades-long conflict over Azerbaijan's Armenian-dominated Nagorno-Karabakh region, with sporadic clashes and even massive escalations of tensions taking place from time to time.
