BAKU (Sputnik) – Armenia violated the ceasefire along the line of contact in Nagorno-Karabakh 116 times over the past 24 hours, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry's press service said Sunday.
"Despite the previously reached deal on ceasefire on the line of contact in Karabakh, the Armenian side violated the regime along the line 116 times over the last 24 hours," the press service stated.
According to the ministry, the Azerbaijani forces responded with 124 fire strikes on the Armenian positions.
Nagorno-Karabakh lies within Azerbaijan but is controlled by ethnic Armenians. It was at the heart of an Azeri-Armenian war in the late 1980s and early 1990s that ended in a Russia-mediated ceasefire in 1994.
