--- Like a Good Neighbor, Ilham is There ----

Addressing a recent Azeri media misinformation:

> due to the acute shortage of military personnel experienced by the Armenian army in occupied Karabakh and on the border with Azerbaijan, residents of nearby villages were periodically recruited for combat duty.

Armenian army has regular conscripts as well as hired soldiers with an experience. Local villagers who don't have a stable job often times join the military to get paid, and at the same time defend their villages.

> The fact is that there is a shortage of Armenian troops on the contact line. Many posts have only two or three servicemen on duty, and at some points of observation there is no one at all.

This is by design. The first line of contact is populated sparsely to reduce casualties. There are soldiers further back, who are dispatched to specific frontline locations when the first line of defense detects intrusions with cameras and heat seekers.
