The Armenian Armed Forces have 10 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 15.
Armenian armed forces, stationed in the Vazashen village of Armenia’s Ijevan district and in Shavarshavan village of the Noyemberyan district opened fire at Azerbaijani positions located in the villages of Bala Jafarli, Farahli, Gushchu Ayrim of Azerbaijan’s Gazakh region.
Azerbaijani positions located in the Munjuglu village of the Tovuz region also underwent fire from the positions located in the Aygedzor village of Armenia’s Berd region.
Moreover, Azerbaijani positions underwent fire from the positions located near the village of Bash Gervend of the Aghdam district, Horadiz, Garakhanbeyli villages and on nameless heights of the Fizuli district.
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.
