Azerbaijan reports shelling of two villages in conflict zone

Within the last 24 hours, the positions of the Azerbaijani militaries stationed in the Karabakh conflict zone were fired for 24 times, including from heavy machine guns, the country's Ministry of Defence (MoD) has stated.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on November 12, Azerbaijan counted 28 shelling attacks on its positions within the past 24 hours. In its turn, the MoD of Nagorno-Karabakh has announced more than 120 shelling attacks on the positions of its Defence Army from committed by Azerbaijan on November 4-10.

On November 11-12, the ceasefire at the troops contact line was violated for 24 times: the Azerbaijani positions deployed in the villages of Agbulag, Mundjuglu in the Tovuz District and on nameless heights in the Gadabay District, were fired from large-calibre machine guns, the Azerbaijani MoD has reported.

Let us remind you that the number of attacks fixed by Azerbaijan has sharply decreased after Azeri President Ilham Aliev and Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan agreed on September 28 to create a mechanism to prevent ceasefire violations.
