Shooting Reported at S.Ossetia Border
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 23 Apr.'09 / 11:54

Both the Georgian and South Ossetian sides have reported that a shooting took place at an administrative border in south-east from Tskhinvali on April 22.

The both sides have blamed each other of opening fire.

The Georgian Interior Ministry said that fire was opened at the Georgian police post in the village of Plavi “from various directions from the Russian-occupied South Ossetian territory” at 8:30pm on April 22. Shooting from automatic weapons lasted for several minutes, the Georgian Interior Ministry said.

The South Ossetian side, however, claimed that its village of Otrev in an immediate vicinity of the administrative border line came under fire from the Georgian side with use of automatic weapons. “The South Ossetian side has not yielded to this provocation and has not opened a response fire,” Ibragim Gassiev, the breakaway region’s deputy defense minister, said in remarks posted on website of the region’s ministry for information and press.
