Armenian armed forces have eight times violated the ceasefire on the line of contact between Azerbaijani and Armenian troops over the past 24 hours, using large caliber machine guns, said Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry Sept. 18.

Armenian armed forces, stationed in the hills in Noyemberian and Krasnoselsk district opened fire at Azerbaijani positions located in the village Kamarli in Gazakh region and nameless hills in Gadabay districts.

Positions of the Azerbaijani army also underwent fire from the Armenian positions located near to the occupied villages Bash Garvand village of Aghdam district, as well as, nameless hills in Goygol, Goranboy, Fuzuli and Jebrail 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.
