An Azerbaijani citizen became a victim of a sniper of the Armenian Armed Forces.
The resident of the Alibeyli village of Tovuz region, Musayev Adil Vekil oglu, fell victim to the fire of an Armenian sniper, while he was moving along the street. Musayev was wounded in the dorsal area.
The wounded man was placed in the central hospital of Tovuz. He had lost a lot of blood and his condition is grievous.
The incident took place on September 4, at 17:00.
İt should be noted that the skirmish, which began in the afternoon on the contact line of Armenia and Azerbaijan, still hasn't stopped.
So far, no official information was provided on the incident.
Despite the monitoring by the OSCE representatives, the situation on the contact line of Armenian and Azerbaijani armed forces remains tense due to frequent ceasefire violations by the Armenian troops.
Earlier, on March 8, in 2011, nine-year-old Fariz Badalov was deadly shot in the head by Armenian sniper while playing in the courtyard in Aghdam region. The international organizations condemned this brutal action of Armenian invaders.
The Armenian forces almost every day open fire at the Azerbaijani positions in different areas of the frontline -- mostly in Gazakh, Aghdam, Fizuli, Goranboy and Terter regions.
A precarious ceasefire, reached after a lengthy war that displaced over a million Azerbaijanis, has been in place between the two South Caucasus countries since 1994. Since the hostilities, Armenian armed forces have occupied over 20 percent of Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territory, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.
The UN Security Council has adopted four resolutions on Armenia's withdrawal from the Azerbaijani territory, but they have not been enforced to this day.
Peace talks are brokered by the OSCE Minsk Group co-chairs representing the United States, Russia and France. The negotiations are underway on the basis of a peace outline proposed by the Minsk Group co-chairs and dubbed the Madrid Principles, also known as Basic Principles. The document envisions a return of the territories surrounding Nagorno-Karabakh to Azerbaijani control; determining the final legal status of Nagorno-Karabakh; a corridor linking Armenia to the region; and the right of all internally displaced persons to return home.
