Nagorno-Karabakh Republic informs that 300 Azerbaijan soldiers were killed and 1000 were wounded in the resumed offensive of Azerbaijan in Nagorny Karabakh on April 4. Azerbaijan refutes this and claims that it eliminated high ranking Armenian officers, including generals, in the offensive, as well as 30 Armenian soldiers and three tanks. Nagorny Karabakh denies the death of officers, Interfax reports.
Armenia claims three drones belonging to Azerbaijan were downed.
Earlier Azerbaijan claimed that it unilaterally ceases military actions against Nagorno-Karabakh Republic in order to fortify the captured territories.
The most intensive combat with the use of all types of heavy weaponry is currently underway in the north-eastern (Martakert) and south-eastern (Gadrut) directions.
