The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry on Wednesday claimed Armenian military forces violated the ceasefire regime along the line of contact in the de facto independent Nagorno-Karabakh Republic 120 times over the past 24 hours.

BAKU (Sputnik) – Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed on a bilateral ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh on April 5 with it coming into force at noon on the same day.

“Despite the reached agreement on a ceasefire along the contact line in Karabakh, the Armenian side violated the regime along the entire line 120 times in 24 hours,” the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry’s press service said.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry added that its military forces returned fire 126 times.

On April 2, Armenia and Azerbaijan declared a dramatic escalation of hostilities in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. Baku and Yerevan traded blame for breaching the truce in the conflict and reported heavy fighting in the area.

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict began back in 1988, when the Armenian-dominated autonomous region sought to secede from the Azerbaijan Soviet Socialist Republic, before proclaiming independence after the Soviet Union's collapse in 1991. The conflict escalated further in September 2015, with the sides blaming one another for violating the truce.
