Armenian armed forces violated ceasefire with Azerbaijan 190 times within the last 24 hours, Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said on August 3.

Azerbaijani positions in Munchuglu, Kokhanebi, Agdam and Alibeyli villages underwent fire from Armenian positions on nameless heights of the country's Berd region, from Chinarly, Aygepar and Mosesgekh villages.

Moreover, Azerbaijan's positions in Gazakh region's Varahli, Kemerli, Guscuyarim, Gaymagli, Mezem, Gizilhagili villages and in Agstafa region's Kohnegishlag village underwent fire from Armenian positions in the country's Barekamayan, Shavarshavan, Dovekh and Voskevan villages of Noemberyansk region, as well as from positions in Idjevan region, from positions in Vozashen, Berkaber and Parakavar villages.

Azerbaijani positions in Gedabey region also took enemy fire from Armenia's Krasnoselsk region.

Armenian armed forces also shelled Azerbaijani positions from villages of Aghdam, Fizuli, Terter, Khojavend, Jabrayil, Goranboy and Goygol regions.

The enemy's attack was silenced with return fire.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. As a result of the ensuing war, in 1992 Armenian armed forces occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

The two countries signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the U.S. are currently holding peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
