On Sunday, the Armenian National Security Service denied rumors about an infiltration of a special group of the Turkish army into the country, warning its citizens not to be dragged into these rumors.
He said, “The information published by the media regarding the entry of representatives of a special group of the Turkish Armed Forces into Armenia does not correspond to reality.”
He added, “We urge our citizens once again not to surrender to misinformation, and to exercise vigilance by refraining from publishing unverified information.”
The Armenian “Live News” website stated, earlier, that “a special group from Turkey consisting of 13 people crossed the Georgian-Armenian border.”
He pointed out, “The group includes representatives of the Operations Department of the Third Field Army, Military Intelligence and the Intelligence Planning and Coordination Department, and that it will participate directly in the process of liquidating the Chief of General Staff of the Armenian Armed Forces, Onik Gasparyan, in addition to other generals.
A political crisis erupted in Yerevan between Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and Chief of Staff Onik Gasparyan, and demonstrations in support of both parties demanded the resignation of the other party.
