Armenia’s armed forces have 24 times violated the ceasefire on the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops over the past 24 hours, said Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry Oct. 9.

Positions of the Azerbaijani army located in the Kohnegishlag village of the Aghstafa district underwent fire from the Armenian positions located in the Paravakar village of Armenia’s Ijevan district.

The Azerbaijani army positions also underwent fire from the Armenian positions located near the Chilaburt village of the Azerbaijan’s Tartar district, Shikhlar, Yusifjanli, Sarijali villages of the Aghdam district, Ashagi Seyidahmadli, Goradiz villages of the Fizuli district, as well as from the positions located on nameless heights of Goranboy, Fizuli and Jabrayil 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.
