The Azerbaijani side started heavy shelling of the NKR Defense Army positions all along the line of contact from 17:00 today, the NKR Defense Ministry reports.
More intensive firing was reported in the northeastern (Martakert) and northern (Talish) directions of the line of contact. The rival fired 116 shells from 82 mm mortars.
“The Azerbaijani side rushed to lay the blame for destabilizing the situation at the line of contact on the Karabakh side, but this does not correspond to reality,” the Ministry said.
The front divisions of the NKR Defense mostly remain committed to the agreement on ceasefire and resort to response actions only in case of extreme necessitytargeting the firing ranges of the rival.
