PanARMENIAN.Net - Azerbaijan has resumed missile and artillery fire on the contact line with Nagorno-Karabakh, attacking particularly intensively in the North-Eastern, Northern and South-Eastern sections, the Karabakh Defense Army revealed on Wednesday, October 14.
"The subdivisions of the Defence Army are taking measures along the entire frontline to stop the offensive operations of the adversary, and are confidently carrying out the sacred mission of defending the borders of the homeland," the Army said.
The situation in the conflict zone was relatively stable but tense overnight, the Army added.
Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and mercenaries deployed by Ankara, launched a large-scale offensive against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27, shelling Armenian positions and civilian settlements with large caliber weapons and rocket systems. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages. Although a humanitarian ceasefire was supposed to begin on October 10, Azerbaijan has renewed hostilities along the line of contact.
Donations can be made to Hayastan All-Armenian Fund, which has launched a fundraising campaign to support Karabakh amid Azerbaijan's aggression.
