Armenian troops continue violating ceasefire with Azerbaijan

The situation on the contact line between Azerbaijan and Armenia has remained tense as the Armenian Armed Forces shattered ceasefire a total of 17 times throughout the day, Azerbaijan`s Defence Ministry reported.

The ceasefire was violated in Sarijali, Shuraabad villages of Aghdam region, Kuropatkino village of Khojavend region, Ashagi Veysalli, Horadiz villages of Fuzuli region, as well as nameless hills of Khojavend and Fuzuli regions.

The Armenians were silenced with a retail fire.

For over two decades, Azerbaijan and Armenia have been locked in conflict which emerged over Armenia’s territorial claims against its South Caucasus neighbor.

Since a war in the early 1990s, Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 percent of Azerbaijan’s territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven surrounding regions. A fragile ceasefire has been in place since 1994, but long-standing efforts by U.S., Russian and French mediators have been largely fruitless so far.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council’s four resolutions on its pullout from the neighboring country’s territories.
