Azerbaijan’s claims of GPS positioning systems of 2 aircraft disrupted due to Artsakh’s Defense Army’s operations are false

The statement released by the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense that pertinent units of Artsakh’s Defense Army regularly suppress the GPS positioning systems of civil aircraft flying through the airspace of Artsakh, posing a serious threat to the safety of flights, is an absolute falsehood.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan states that the last similar incident allegedly occurred on July 13, when due to radio suppression by the Defense Army, the GPS positioning systems of aircraft flying on the Zangilan-Fizuli route at 11:54-12:07 and on the Fizuli-Baku route at 13:02-13:17 were disrupted. In reality, aircraft flying on the mentioned routes do not need to cross the contact line, therefore they cannot be affected by Defense Army’s radio suppression system.

Needless to say that throughout the hostilities in 2020 and thereafter, it is the Azerbaijani side that consistently targets the civil infrastructure of the Republic of Artsakh, blocking the Lachin Corridor, disrupting gas and electricity supply lines and suppressing the internet and cellular signals.

The press service of the Artsakh Ministry of Defense reports about this.
