On March 4, the Azerbaijanis had fired at Norshen village of the Martuni region of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), and urged—through a loudspeaker—the local residents to leave the area.
In a conversation with Armenian News-NEWS.am Monday, Norshen’s prefect Gevorg Harutyunyan said that shots are often heard, but the aforesaid calls from the loudspeaker were made for the first time on March 4.
“They [i.e., the Azerbaijanis] had come, fired in the air several times, put a loudspeaker on and said, ‘Leave the area! Don’t work!’ The actions of the adversary lasted about two hours. We informed the Russian peacekeepers [about it], after which they [i.e., the Azerbaijanis]] stopped their actions. There is no panic among the villagers. At any rate, there is fear; they simply have already gotten used to it,” Harutyunyan said.
