Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other of violating the new truce

Earlier, the Baku and Yerevan announced that a ceasefire will come into force with the coming of the resurrection.

Armenia and Azerbaijan on Sunday accused each other of violating a new humanitarian ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh only a few hours after its entry into force.

The Armenian Defense Ministry in a tweet accused Azerbaijan of violating the new ceasefire agreement in the region.

“Once again violating the humanitarian truce, the enemy used artillery in the Northern direction from 00:04 to 02:45 and fired missiles in the southern direction from 02:20 to 02:45,” Shushan Stepanyan said, a spokeswoman for the Armenian Defense Minister.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry later stated that “the enemy shelled the vicinity of the city of Jabrayil, as well as villages in the region, using mortars and artillery.” The Ministry noted that the Azerbaijani army “took adequate response measures.”

Earlier, Azerbaijan and Armenia announced that they had agreed to a new cease-fire from Sunday, which is the second attempt in a week to reduce the intensity of the nearly three-week conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

“The Republic of Armenia and the Republic of Azerbaijan have agreed on a humanitarian truce starting at 00:00 local time on October 18,” the Armenian Foreign Ministry said on Saturday evening.

An identical statement was issued by the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry.
