Armenia breaks ceasefire with Azerbaijan 15 times in 24 hours
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 14
Over the past 24 hours, Armenia’s armed forces have 15 times violated the ceasefire along the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops, said Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry Nov. 14.
The Azerbaijani army positions located in Qaymaqli village of Azerbaijan’s Gazakh district underwent fire from the Armenian army positions located in Barekamavan village of the Noyemberyan district of Armenia.
The Azerbaijani army positions located in Munjuglu village of Azerbaijan’s Tovuz district underwent fire from the Armenian army positions located on the nameless heights of the Berd district of Armenia.
Moreover, the Azerbaijani army positions also underwent fire from the Armenian positions located near the Armenian-occupied Chilaburt village of the Tartar district, as well as on nameless heights of the Goranboy, Tartar and Fizuli 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.
