Despite the Azerbaijan’s unilateral ceasefire decision, Armenian Armed Forces have targeted the civil settlements with peaceful population. It was also reported that Armenia keeps under heavy fire the Azerbaijani positions along the demarcation line.
Speaker of the Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry Hikmet Hajiyev in his written statement imposed responsibility for the subsequent actions of Azerbaijan on Armenia:
“If the Armenian Armed Forces continue to target the civil settlements with peaceful population, Armenia will be responsible for the next steps of Azerbaijan to ensure the safety of its citizens.”
As a result of the armed conflict that began on the night of April 1-2, 12 Azerbaijani servicemen were killed in Nagorno-Karabakh. According to the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan, more than a hundred Armenians were killed and wounded.
