BAKU, April 7. /TASS/. Armenia’s forces have violated the ceasefire regime along the front line 119 times over the past 24 hours, Azerbaijan’s defense ministry said in a statement on Thursday.
The positions of Azerbaijan’s forces along the border of the two countries and in Nagorno-Karabakh came under shelling, the ministry said. The shelling was carried out with the use of mortars with caliber of 60 mm, 82 mm and 120 mm and heavy-caliber machine guns.
"In line with the operative situation, Azerbaijan’s Armed Forces carried out 125 fire attacks on positions and dug positions of the enemy," the ministry said.
The situation along the line of contact in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict zone deteriorated dramatically overnight to April 2 when fierce clashes began. The parties to the conflict accused each other of violating the truce.
The Armenian and Azerbaijani defense ministries announced cessation of combat operations in Nagorno-Karabakh from 11:00 a.m. (0800GMT) Moscow time on April 5.
