Head of the Commission’s working group Firudin Sadigov told APA that both Armenians are civilians: “They are elderly. The Azerbaijani side wants to send them back. Perhaps, they will be handed over to Armenia soon. The Commission will appeal to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to inform the Armenian side.”

The Defense Ministry’s press service told APA that on March 16 at 16:50, resident of Dovekh village of Armenia’s Noyemberyan region Karyan Durmus and on March 17 at 16:20, resident of Ayqovid village of Ijevan region Arakelyan Anahid Hamazasovna passed to Azerbaijani territory on the contact line in Gazakh region and were captured by our Armed Forces.

The investigation is underway to determine why the captives violated the line of contact. They were handed over to the State Commission on Prisoners of War, Hostages and Missing Persons.
