Armenia continues to violate ceasefire with Azerbaijan
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 11
Armenia’s armed forces have 17 times violated the ceasefire on the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops over the past 24 hours, said Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry Oct. 11.
The Azerbaijani army positions located in the Kamarli village of the Gazakh district underwent fire from the Armenian army positions located in the Dovekh village of Armenia’s Noyemberyan district.
Meanwhile, the Azerbaijani army positions located on nameless heights of Azerbaijan’s Gadabay district took fire from the Armenian positions located on nameless heights of Armenia’s Krasnoselsk district.
The Azerbaijani army positions also underwent fire from the Armenian positions located near the Goyarkh village of the Azerbaijan’s Tartar district, Bash Gervend village of the Aghdam district, Ashagi Seyidahmadli village of the Fuzuli district, Kuropatkino village of the Khojavand district, as well as from the positions located on nameless heights of the Goygol, Goranboy and Fuzuli districts.
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 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.
Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
