Three Armenian soldiers were killed and three others wounded in heavy fighting with Azerbaijani forces that broke out along the Armenian-Azerbaijani border early on Wednesday.

Armenia’s Defense Ministry said Azerbaijani forces attacked at dawn its positions in Gegharkunik province bordering the Kelbajar district in Azerbaijan.

Sources close to the Armenian military claimed that Azerbaijani troops initially seized one of its border posts in Gegharkunik. They said the post was recaptured by the Armenian side a couple of hours later.
