At the same time, Azerbaijan's military has fired over 120 artillery shells at Armenian positions in the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said Saturday.

"Given the current situation, the Azerbaijani Armed Forces have carried out 121 artillery strikes against Armenian positions," the ministry said in a press statement.

Azerbaijan does not recognize the ethnically Armenian self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) and considers the Nagorno-Karabakh Defense Army to be a part of the Armed Forces of Armenia.
