I don't exclude the possibility of using Mingachevir hydro-power plant as a target. Artsakh's army can paralyze Azerbaijan’s economy if necessary.
I don't exclude possibility of using Mingachevir as target, Artsakh defense minister says
STEPANAKERT, JULY 24, ARTSAKHPRESS: As ArtsakhPress correspondent informed, Artsakh Republic defense minister, Lieutenant-General Levon Mnatsakanyan, said the aforementioned during a press conference held on Tuesday.
“We have the capacity to paralyze Azerbaijan’s economy, but I don’t see a reason for that now. The combat art requires making attacks on such military objects. It will cause damage to the economy and will rule out the possibility to deliver respective supplies to the Armed Forces of the adversary,” the defense minister said.
As for the purchase of several foreign weapons by Azerbaijan, in particular, the Israeli operational tactical missiles with a distance of 300 km, the Artsakh defense minister said the Armenian side can give an adequate counterattack to them.
“Our Armed Forces also have a similar weapon. The attacking capacities are almost the same as that of Azerbaijan. We also have the opportunity of precision fire”, the Defense Army commander said.
