Azerbaijan reports 49 shelling attacks on the frontline

During the last 24 hours, the positions of the Azerbaijani Army deployed in the Karabakh conflict zone and on the Armenian border were shelled for 49 times, the Azerbaijani Ministry of Defence (MoD) has stated today.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on July 10, Azerbaijan counted 69 shelling attacks committed for the past 24 hours on its troops' positions stationed in the Karabakh conflict zone; and the day earlier, they counted 65 such attacks.

"During the last 24 hours, the units of the Armed Forces of Armenia violated the ceasefire in various sections of the frontline for 49 times," the Azerbaijani MoD has reported on its website today.

It follows from the MoD's report that the Azerbaijani positions deployed on nameless heights in the Gadabay District came under fire.

The fire was also delivered from the territories that Azerbaijan treats as its occupied ones, the country's MoD has stated.

As of 8:20 a.m. Moscow time today, the MoDs of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh had not commented on the above statement on their websites.

After the escalation of the Karabakh conflict in April 2016, the parties agreed on the ceasefire. Despite the agreement, over two years, the parties claimed daily shelling attacks in the conflict zone, as it follows from the infographic "Karabakh after the truce: a two-year war" prepared by the "Caucasian Knot". After the meeting of officials from the Ministries of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of Armenia and Azerbaijan, held on June 20, Azerbaijan stated an almost complete cessation of shelling attacks; however, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) of Nagorno-Karabakh continues to register violations of the ceasefire.
