On September 2, the situation was tense along the Armenia-Azerbaijan border as Azerbaijani forces heavily shelled a number of border villages – Nerkin Tsaghkavan, Berkaber, Koti – in the Armenian Tavush province. As reported by Armtimes.com, the adversary launched attacks not only on border villages, but also in the direction of Sevkar village located quite far from the border. Five mortar shells exploded in Sevkar Wednesday evening.
Two residents of Koti village, Nazik Tumanyan and her son Razmik were injured in the attack and transported to Noyemberyan Medical Center; their lives are not in danger, Aravot.am wrote.
Armenia’s Defense Ministry spokesperson Artsrun Hohvannisyan said Wednesday the enemy fire was quite heavy: “I'd describe the situation as very serious, tense. Armenian armed forces are now responding to the adversary's fire.”
Around 11:30 PM Wednesday, Armenian police began stopping cars in the town of Dilijan and informing drivers to Tbilisi that the Ijevan-Noyemberyan highway was closed and they would have to reach Tbilisi by the Vanadzor-Alaverdi road.
