Azerbaijan resumes intense artillery fire in Karabakh

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Azerbaijani military has resumed intense artillery fire in the north and southeast of the contact line, the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army reports.

The Karabakh troops are controlling the situation in the frontline and taking measures to inflict heavy losses on Azeri forces.

The situation remained stable but tense overnight, the Army said Thursday, October 15.

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 humanitarian efforts in Karabakh.
