Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry has dismissed Armenia media reports of the death of a soldier of the Azerbaijani Armed Forces, stressing that the soldier (Huseynov Murad) is currently serving the Azerbaijani Army, the ministry’s press service has said in a statement to APA.

“With regard to the baseless pieces of information shared on social networks of the latest incidents that happened at the contact line, as well as fake YouTube videos and photos, we have to say that these are being carried out by certain persons working for Armenia’s secret service agencies,” the ministry said.

There is no doubt about Armenia’s interest in disseminating this type of provocative information and trying to cause panic in the society, the ministry stressed.

The ministry’s press service has even presented a video message from soldier Murad Huseynov to APA.
