An Azerbaijan army captain has been killed after Armenian troops allegedly fired across the border of the Caucasus countries.

Elnur Ceferov, 36, succumbed to wounds he sustained after being shot at in the Terter border region, an Azerbaijan defense ministry statement said.

Ceferov was instantly decorated with a “third degree military service medal” by Azerbaijan defense minister Zakir Hasanov.

Since the countries fought a three-year long war between 1991 and 1993 over the sovereignty of the conflicted Nagorno-Karabakh region, soldiers on both sides have been killed by sporadic occasions of cross-border fire.
