Georgia Says its Armored Vehicle Blown Up
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 7 Aug.'08 / 15:42

Three Georgian servicemen were injured after South Ossetian militiamen blew up an infantry combat vehicle belonging to the Georgian peacekeeping battalion, the Interior Ministry said on August 7.

“The incident occurred in the village of Avnevi,” Shota Utiashvili, a Georgian Interior Ministry spokesman, told Civil.Ge. “The Georgian infantry combat vehicle was hit by a rocket propelled grenade fired by the South Ossetian separatists.”

The South Ossetian secessionist authorities claimed on August 6 that their militias had blown up a Georgian armored personnel carrier, but the report was denied both by Tbilisi and the Russian peacekeeping forces.
