25 February 2014 [16:55] - TODAY.AZ
Subunits of the Armenian Armed Forces shattered ceasefire with Azerbaijan in Yusifjanli village of Agdam region, Kuropathkino village of Khojavand region, Gizil Oba village of Tartar region and nameless hills of Fuzuli region on February 24-25.

The Armenians were silenced with a retail fire, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan. Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group, Russia, France and the U.S. are currently holding peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on theliberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
