Air forces of Azerbaijan attacked Nagorno-Karabakh. Prime Minister of Armenia
Nikol Pashinyan accused Baku of attack.
He announced this on his Facebook page.
Armenian Prime Minister noted, that the armed forces of the unrecognized republic are restraining aggression:
The Defense Army successfully resists the attack. The situation is in a state of operational development.
Before that, the press service of the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan reported, that the Armenian military fired at Azerbaijani positions and settlements on the contact line in Nagorno-Karabakh. Civilians killed and civilian infrastructure damaged.
The shelling was conducted from mortars, artillery of various calibers and large-caliber small arms. It happened around six in the morning local time.
There were no official comments on these statements by the Azerbaijani side from the authorities of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh.
From time to time, hostilities resume, despite, that a ceasefire regime has been established between the parties to the conflict, which is regulated by the signed in 1994 year protocol. It is understood, that armed escalation is not beneficial to either side – nor Azerbaijan, nor Armenia.
