The video was spread on the social network, which tells about an incident that took place between border guards and locals at the border area in Davit Gareji. According to the guide, who works at the site, the cause of the conflict was the fact that Azerbaijani border guards took icons from the church without permission. This caused a protest of the locals. However, as he notes, the issue was soon resolved.
