Armenia again breaks ceasefire with Azerbaijan
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 26
Over the past 24 hours, Armenia’s armed forces have 17 times violated the ceasefire along the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops, said Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry Nov. 26.
The Azerbaijani army positions located in the Farahli village of Azerbaijan’s Gazakh district underwent fire from the Armenian army positions located in the Shavarshavan village of the Noyemberyan district of Armenia.
Meanwhile, positions of the Azerbaijani army located in the Munjuglu, Kokhanabi and Aghbulag villages were also fired at from the Armenian army positions located in the Chinari village of Armenia’s Berd district, as well as on nameless heights of the same district.
Moreover, the Azerbaijani army positions were fired at from the Armenian positions located near the Armenian-occupied Chilaburt and Goyarkh villages of the Tartar district, Marzili village of the Aghdam district, Kuropatkino village of the Khojavand district, as well as on nameless heights of the Goranboy, Tartar 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.
