No shelling occurred in the capital of the unrecognised Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) overnight from Sunday to Monday, a Sputnik correspondent reports.
On Monday morning, air raid sirens went off in Stepanakert for about five minutes, starting from around 7:27 a.m. local time (3:27 GMT), according to a Sputnik correspondent, who says that it was likely that a reconnaissance drone was spotted by the radars. Local eyewitnesses said that two or three explosions were heard somewhere far from the city.
Over the weekend, Nagorno-Karabakh authorities said that two towns had been shelled by Azerbaijan despite the active ceasefire brokered by Russia, while Baku claimed that the city of Ganja was attacked with missiles from the territory of Armenia, an accusation that has strongly been denied by Yerevan.
Clashes along the contact line of the disputed Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh erupted in late September abd have been ongoing since then, leaving hundreds dead on the Armenian and Azerbaijani sides. During the Friday talks in Moscow, foreign ministers of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia agreed to a humanitarian ceasefire, however, the parties to the conflict have repeatedly accused each other of violating the truce.
