After “Four-Day War” Exposes Weaknesses, Heads Begin To Roll In Yerevan

Three high-ranking Armenian military and defense officials have been fired amid growing recriminations about the performance of the country’s armed forces in what has come to be called the “four-day war” with Azerbaijan earlier this month.

The officials included a top Ministry of Defense procurement official, as well as the head of intelligence at the general staff and the head of communications at the MoD. Part of the reason: the officials were believed to be using budget funds meant for military procurements for their own personal use, reported the newspaper Zhoghovurd, citing the president’s office.
