Armenia and Azerbaijan on the verge of war
Almaty. November 14. KazTAG - Armenian helicopter, downed on the line of contact of both sides, which is shared by Armenian and Azerbaijani forces in the zone of Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, is one of the most serious incidents of its kind in 20 years despite the cease-fire agreement signed by both sides.
Three Armenian servicemen died in the crash. While an Azerbaijani officer who shot down the helicopter was awarded a medal.
As Baku states, helicopter was downed in an area proximate to the line of contact, demarcating Armenian and Azerbaijani forces, and was flying over the positions of Azerbaijani army.
However, Erevan retorts, saying that Armenian aircraft was carrying out a training flight and posing no threat.
