The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported that subunits of the Armenian Armed Forces shattered ceasefire with Azerbaijan in Yusifjanli, Javahirli, Namirli and Shikhlar villages of Aghdam region, Garakhanbayli, Horadiz and Gorgan villages of Fuzuli region, Goyarkh and Chilaburt villages of Tartar region, Kuropatkino village of Khojavand region and nameless hills of Goygol and Goranboy regions last night.

Armenia occupied over 20 percent of Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions, after laying territorial claims against its South Caucasus neighbor that had caused a lengthy war in the early 1990s.
The UN Security Council's four resolutions on Armenian withdrawal have not been enforced to this day.
Peace talks, mediated by Russia, France and the US and the OSCE Minsk Group are underway on the basis of a peaceful outline -called Madrid Principle -proposed by the Minsk Group co-chairs. The negotiations have been largely fruitless so far.
