Two Karabakh soldiers killed as Azerbaijan violates ceasefire

PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijani armed forces continued violating ceasefire on the line of contact with Nagorno Karabakh overnight on April 29-30, using not only firearms, but also 60- and 82-mm mortars.

As a result of Azerbaijan’s violation of the verbal agreement on ceasefire, two Karabakh soldiers, Garik Movsisyan (b. 1997) and Vazgen Harutyunyan (b. 1968), were lethally wounded.

The Nagorno Karabakh Defense Ministry declared that the rival’s actions will be retaliated, with Azerbaijan bearing the whole responsibility of consequences.

The Azerbaijani armed forces opened fire towards Karabakh positions on the night of April 28-29, using various caliber firearms, 60-, 82- and 120-mm mortars, as well as RPG-7, AGM-9 and AGS-17 grenade launchers.

The conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan

The conflict between Nagorno Karabakh and Azerbaijan broke out as result of the ethnic cleansing launched by the Azeri authorities in the final years of the Soviet Union. The Karabakh War was fought from 1991 (when the Nagorno Karabakh Republic was proclaimed) to 1994 (when a ceasefire was sealed by Armenia, NKR and Azerbaijan). Most of Nagorno Karabakh and a security zone consisting of 7 regions are now under control of NKR defense army. Armenia and Azerbaijan are holding peace talks mediated by the OSCE Minsk Group up till now.
