28 April 2014 [10:30] - TODAY.AZ
Armenian Armed Forces broke ceasefire with Azerbaijani side again last night, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said on April 28.

The armed forces of Armenia, located at the nameless heights of Armenia's Krasnoselski region, opened fire at the positions of Azerbaijani Armed Forces located at the nameless heights in Gadabay region.

At the same time, the Azerbaijani positions took fire from the positions located near the villages of Chilaburt, Gizil Oba of Terter, Mehdili of Jabrayil region and at the nameless heights in the territory of Goranboy region.

The Azerbaijani Armed forces silenced the opposing side with return fire.

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 two countries 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 the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
