Ceasefire broken as Armenia fires at Azerbaijani positions

Over the past 24 hours, Armenia’s armed forces have 31 times violated the ceasefire along the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops.

Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 29 Over the past 24 hours, Armenia’s armed forces have 31 times violated the ceasefire along the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops, said Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry Oct. 29. The Azerbaijani army positions located in Bala Jafarli village of the Gazakh district and Kokhanabi village of the Tovuz district of Azerbaijan underwent fire from the Armenian army positions located in the Vazashen village of the Ijevan district and on nameless heights of the Berd district of Armenia. The Azerbaijani army positions also underwent fire from the Armenian positions located near the Armenian-occupied Chilaburt, Goyarkh villages of Azerbaijan’s Tartar district, Sarijali village of the Aghdam district, Gorgan, Garakhanbayli villages of the Fuzuli district, Mehdili village of the Jabrayil district, as well as from the positions located on nameless heights of the Goranboy and Jabrayil 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.
