Artsakh Vows Retaliation if Azerbaijan Continues Ceasefire Provocations.

“The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Artsakh is committed to the agreements aimed at reducing tensions between the parties, but will retaliate should the rival continue with provocations,” said the Ministry of Defense of Artsakh in an official statement.

“Last night and earlier morning today the enemy fired from various caliber weapons in the direction of several villages and combat positions in Tavush. The rival forces went silent after a responsive fire,” said Artstrun Hovhannisyan, Spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense of Armenia.

“In recent days, an increase in cease-fire violations by the enemy has been noticed on the Artsakh-Azerbaijan line of contact. By again demonstrating an unconstructive position and moreover, ignoring the session of the CIS defense ministers being held in Baku, the Azerbaijani side moves on the path of artificially escalating the situation on the frontline, frequently firing shots from sniper rifles,” added the Ministry of Defense of Artsakh.

Azerbaijani Armed Forces breached the ceasefire at the Artsakh line of contact over 170 times with more than 1,500 rounds fired from different caliber weapons at Artsakh’s positions between Oct. 20-26, 2019. Artsakh’s frontline units respected the ceasefire & continued to confidently carry out their military duty. This week saw an increase of 20 ceasefire violations and 400 more rounds fired from the previous week.
