TEHRAN, October 21 (Itar-Tass) —— An Iranian border guard was shot and killed on the border with Azerbaijan, FARS news agency reported on Thursday quoting an official of the border troops.
The unarmed 18-year old border guard crossed into Azerbaijan by mistake on Wednesday and came under fire, the official said. He was wounded and died in hospital, the official said adding authorities of both countries are investigating the incident.
In July Azerbaijani border guard Rufat Kuliyev was killed in an armed incident on the border with Iran. Iranian authorities said the incident occurred because of “unlawful penetration” into the Iranian territory by Azerbaijani servicemen who did not react to the warnings of Iranian border guards.
