Defense Ministries of Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other of shelling in Nagorno-Karabakh. In Yerevan, they say that the Azerbaijani military is conducting intensive artillery shelling in the south. In Baku, they say that the Armenian military are shooting at the Agdam region.

“At night, the situation in the conflict zone was stably tense. Now the enemy is conducting intensive artillery shelling in the southern direction, “- the speaker of the Armenian Defense Ministry Shushan Stepanyan wrote on Facebook.

“On October 12, the Armenian armed forces fired on the territory of Aghdam region in the morning,” the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry said in a statement.

Note that Armenia and Azerbaijan on Saturday night in Moscow agreed to ceasefire from noon on October 10. But on the same day, the sides mutually accused each other of non-compliance with the agreements and strikes in the zone of the Karabakh conflict.

Baku launched an offensive in Nagorno-Karabakh, seeking to restore sovereignty over the region. The coming days will show whether Azerbaijan will be able to achieve its goal. In the meantime, the Azerbaijani army took control of six settlements in the region and several strategic heights in the conflict zone.
