Armenian armed forces have 6 times violated the ceasefire on the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops over the past 24 hours, said Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry July 31.

Armenian armed forces, stationed in the Berkaber, Paravakar villages of Armenia’s Ijevan district opened fire at Azerbaijani positions located in the Gizilhajili village of Azerbaijan’s

Gazakh district, Kohneqishlaq village of the Agstafa district.

Azerbaijani positions located in the Alibayli villages of the Tovuz district also took fire from the positions located in the Aygepar village of Armenia’s Berd district.

Moreover, Azerbaijani positions took fire from the positions located near the Horadiz village of the Fizuli district and on nameless heights of the Goygol and Fizuli districts.

 

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 1994 ceasefire agreement was followed by peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of its armed forces from the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding districts.
