    Armenia has eight times violated Nagorno-Karabakh`s ceasefire, the Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said on Saturday in a statement.

    BAKU (Sputnik) – Armenia has violated the ceasefire in Nagorno-Karabakh eight times during last 24 hours, the Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry said on Saturday in a statement.

    "Despite the earlier reached agreement on the ceasefire regime on the contact line in Karabakh, the Armenian side violated the regime across the line eight times in last 24 hours," the statement said.

    The Defense Ministry of the self-proclaimed Nagorno-Karabakh Republic accused Azerbaijan of 25 violations of the ceasefire regime.

    "Overnight into August 6, Azerbaijan’s armed forces violated the ceasefire regime across the contact line 25 times, firing more than 330 times with light weapons of various calibers at the Armenian positions," the statement of the Defense Ministry read.Azerbaijan's Armenian-dominated breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh proclaimed its independence in 1991. After the military conflict ended in 1994, Azerbaijan lost control over the region.

    Violence erupted in Nagorno-Karabakh on April 2, and led to multiple casualties. The parties to the conflict signed a Russian-brokered ceasefire on April 5, but mutual accusations have not stopped so far.
