On April 11, the military departments of Armenia and Azerbaijan again accused each other of violating the ceasefire regime.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan claimed that units of the Armenian Armed Forces opened intense fire with small arms on the opposing positions of the Azerbaijani Army in the Lachin direction. Fire was opened from the Armenian military positions near the settlement of Dyg in the Goris district.

In its turn, the Armenian Defense Ministry reported that the Azerbaijani military opened fire on Armenian soldiers who were carrying out engineering work near the village of Tegh. This village is located in the eastern part of the region, on the highway from Yerevan and Goris to Stepanakert. A little later, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces units reportedly launched mortar fire in the same direction.

As a result of the clashes, there were reports of dead and wounded on both sides. The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry announced that three serviceman were killed and several others were wounded after the shooting.

According to some local reports, there are three dead and many wounded on the Armenian side. Among the injured is the commander of the special army corps Armen Gezalyan, who is currently in a hospital. At the same time, the death toll may increase, since the Armenian military has not yet managed to remove the wounded from the scene of the shootout.

Earlier on April 11, two Azerbaijani soldiers entered Armenian territory from Nakhichevan. At night, the local residents noticed two suspicious persons in the Syunik region of Armenia in the village of Bnunis. One of them was captured. The  second soldier is wanted by the Armenian special services.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan issued a message that two soldiers in Nakhichevan got lost and disappeared. The deputy of the Armenian parliament considered that the Azerbaijani military fled from their positions and crossed the border.
