Subunits of the Armenian Armed Forces shattered ceasefire with Azerbaijan in Yuifjanli, Sarijali and Shirvanli villages of Agdam region, Ashagi Veysalli, Ashagi Seyidahmadli and Garakhanbayli villages of Fuzuli region and nameless hills of Dashkasan, Khojavand and Goranboy regions on October 6-7, AzerTAg state news agency reported.
The Armenians were silenced with a retail fire, the Defence Ministry said.
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/
