YEREVAN, April 7. /TASS/. Azerbaijan’s army has shelled the positions of Armenian forces and settlements in the country’s east, the official spokesman of Armenia’s defense ministry told TASS on Thursday.

Late on Wednesday, "the units of Azerbaijan’s Armed Forces carried out active shelling at the positions of Armenian army and settlements of Armenia in the direction of the town of Vardenis," Artsrun Oganesyan said.

The shelling was conducted from various types of firearms, and several hundred shells were fired from large-caliber machine guns and mortars with the caliber of 60 mm, the spokesman said.
