Several more crimes have been registered in the units of the Armenian armed forces in Azerbaijan’s occupied territories.

Soldiers Asatryan and Arsen Markaryan suffered severe bodily injuries as a result of hazing at Madagiz’s military base, reliable sources told News.Az. Both soldiers of the regiment carrying out their duties were beaten wildly by unit commander Ashot Gevorkyan when they refused  to clean the washing place. It also came out that on the same day Gagik Martirosyan, a soldier of the 2nd regiment, was taken to hospital having his finger broken in unclear circumstances.
