a weapon surrendered to Armenian front keepers. The Defense ministry
of Azerbaijan confirmed that fact and mentioned that as Azerbaijani
soldier was ~Slost~T in the location.

Armenpress reports calling SalamNews that during the press conference
organized on occasion of the incident Jafarov has said: ~SDuring the
incident there has not been any white flag. I am sure that Firuz
did not surrender but was taken prisoner. Those who are aware of
the location know that the distance between Armenian and Azerbaijani
forces is not so small but at the same time is not so big that the
soldier could be lost or pass the mined area~T.

He mentioned that the investigation must find out how soldier with
~S4th degree of limitation~T reached the border. ~SOn July 4 his leg
has been operated. After returning to military station he was taken
prisoner. The investigation must estimate those moments~T he mentioned.
