PanARMENIAN.Net - Numerous violations of the ceasefire along the Armenian-Azerbaijani border were reported Friday, Jan 10.

The Azerbaijani armed forces opened fire not only on positions of the Armenian army but also targeted settlements near Berd town, including villages of Nerkin Karmraghbyur and Aygepar in Tavush province, spokesman for the RA Defense Ministry Artsrun Hovhannisyan told PanARMENIAN.Net

“As a result of retaliatory measures, the Azeri fire was stopped,” Hovhannisyan said, adding that no one was killed or injured on the Armenian side.
