BAKU (Sputnik) — At least two civilians were killed and 10 injured in Saturday shelling by the Armenian army along the contact line in Nagorno-Karabakh, Azerbaijani General Prosecutor's Office said in a statement.
"As a result of Armenia's military actions, two people were killed and 10 injured. Schools, homes are destroyed, infrastructure has been damaged. Taking into account all these facts, the Azerbaijani side opened a criminal case in accordance with the Azerbaijani Criminal Code," the statement said.
The conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh began 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. In September 2015, the conflict escalated, with the sides blaming each other for breaching the truce.
