Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday of violating a new humanitarian ceasefire in fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Press secretary of the Armenian defence ministry Shushan Stepanian says Azerbaijan has violated the ceasefire agreement.
“The DA units have destroyed 4 enemy assaulting tanks in the southern direction. In the southern flank of the Artsakh-Azerbaijani conflict zone the enemy is employing a large number of UAVs and artillery systems,” Shushan Stepanyan said.
The Azerbaijan defence ministry has accused the Armenian Armed Forces.
“Armenia attempted to aggravate the situation also on the state border with Azerbaijan. On October 18, from 00:05 am to 04:00 am the Armenian armed forces units stationed in Chambarak and Berd regions of Armenia using large-calibre weapons fired at the positions of the Azerbaijan Army in Gadabay and Tovuz regions respectively,” the ministry said.
