Armenian armed forces have 19 times violated the ceasefire on the line of contact of the Azerbaijani and Armenian troops over the past 24 hours, Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry reported on July 14.
Armenian armed forces, stationed in the villages of Barekamavan and Voskepar of Armenia’s Noyemberyan district, opened fire at Azerbaijani positions located in the villages of Gaymagli, Gushchu Ayrim and the nameless heights of the Gazakh district.
Armenian armed forces, stationed in the villages of Chinari and Mosesqekh of Armenia’s Berd district, opened fire at Azerbaijani positions located in the village of Agbulag of the Tovuz district.
Moreover, Azerbaijani positions underwent fire from the positions located near Chileburt village of the Terter district, Kuropatkino village of the Khojavand district, Horadiz village of the Fizuli district, Mehdili village of the Jabrayil viilage and nameless heights of the Goygol, Goranboy 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.
