The Armenian armed forces opened fire at positions of the Azerbaijani armed forces located at the nameless heights in the territory of Gadabay region from the positions located at the nameless heights of Armenia's Krasnoselskiy region last night, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported.
Also, Azerbaijani armed forces were fired from the positions near Qizil Oba village in Tartar region, Kuropatkino village in Khojavand region, Asagi Abdurrahmanli and Goradiz villages in Fizuli region.
The shooting was countered by return 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 US, 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./AzerNews/
