Azerbaijan violates ceasefire with Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Azerbaijani military fired from various caliber firearms to target Armenian positions in the eastern section of the border on Wednesday, December 30, the Armenian Defense Ministry reported on Thursday.

No casualties were reported on the Armenian side, although a serviceman was injured in ceasefire violations earlier in the week.

The Defense Ministry said the situation was relatively stable as of Friday morning but was overall tense since mid-September.

The latest round of fighting between the two countries began in the wee hours of September 13, when the Azerbaijani military attacked Armenian posts and shelled Armenian settlements both on the border and deep behind the frontline. More than 200 people are dead or missing as a result, the Security Council of Armenia said a few days after the assault.
