The Armenian armed forces units opened fire from the positions in the directions of the Basarkechar region (Yukhari Shorzha, Garaiman, Gunashli, Istisu settlements) and the Gorus region (Garashen settlement) using various caliber weapons.

The Azerbaijan army positions stationed in the directions of the Kalbajar region (Istisu, Mollabayramli settlements), the Lachin region (Jaghazar settlement), and the Dashkasan region (Astaf, Tazakend settlements) were subjected to fire.

Moreover, members of illegal Armenian armed detachments in the territory of Azerbaijan, where the Russian peacekeeping forces are temporarily deployed, subjected to fire the Azerbaijan Army positions stationed in the direction of the Khojaly region.

According to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, adequate retaliatory measures have been taken by Azerbaijan Army Units.
