Following the establishment of the ceasefire between Azerbaijan and Armenia in Nagorno-Karabakh on October 10th, hostilities were supposed to subside.

They haven’t entirely.

A video was released to provide evidence that Syrian mercenaries are still operating in the area.

The Azerbaijani armed forces are shelling the city of Hadrut. The Artsakh defense army stops the opponent’s attempts to advance in the southern direction, said Armenian Ministry of Defense spokesperson Shushan Stepanyan.

According to Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) President Arayik Harutyunyan, Azerbaijan is immediately attempting to sabotage the ceasefire.

“I have just returned from Hadrut. As you know, the opponent, ignoring the agreement on a humanitarian truce, launched a sabotage attack on the center of the region [Hadrut]. The situation at the moment is completely under the control of Artsakh Defense Army. I will talk about the agreements reached and their violations at a press conference at 10:00 am [Yerevan time], tomorrow. I hope this time there will be no new obstacles.”

Additionally, the Armenian side claimed that since the beginning of hostilities in Artsakh, the Armenian side has a total of 404 servicemen who fell defending their homeland.

“The opponent continues shelling Martuni, Shushi and other large rural communities of Artsakh,” press Secretary of the President of Artsakh Vahram Poghosyan said.

The Ombudsman of Nagorno-Karabakh Artak Beglaryan said that according to their information, today Azerbaijani armed forces saboteurs who tried to enter the city of Hadrut killed two residents of the city in their own home – a woman and her disabled son.

Beglaryan promised to present details of this war crime on October 11th.

During the first night of the “truce”, hundreds of grenades exploded in the capital of Artsakh, and the Azerbaijani armed forces again used cluster munitions on Stepanakert. A dozen BM-30 Smerch grenades rained down on the city. “We were woken up by explosions all the night.”

Also, in spite of the ceasefire, Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense continues releasing videos showing their attacks on Armenian troops and equipment.


It is showing how much will there is to establish a ceasefire, especially on the side of Baku.
