An Armenian X-55 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was destroyed by the Azerbaijani armed forces, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry said in a statement.
The UAV was shot as it was attempting to fly over the Azerbaijani positions along the frontline and performing intelligence gathering operations, added the ministry.
On the night of April 2, 2016, all the frontier positions of Azerbaijan were subjected to heavy fire from the Armenian side, which used large-caliber weapons, mortars and grenade launchers.
The armed clashes resulted in deaths and injuries among the Azerbaijani population. Azerbaijan responded with a counter-attack, which led to liberation of several strategic heights and settlements.
