Armenian troops shell civilian agricultural machinery in Fuzuli region
Although the ceasefire agreement between Armenia and Azerbaijan was signed back in 1994, the situation remains tough on the frontline. The Armenian armed forces break the ceasefire every day and commit provocations with the use of large caliber machine guns, mortars and other weapons.
On May 29, another ceasefire breaking from the Armenian side resulted in damaging the agricultural machinery of an Azerbaijani civilian.
“In the morning, the Armenian armed units located in the direction of the occupied Gorgan village of Fuzuli region subjected to fire a combine harvester carrying out agricultural work in the sowing area,” the Defense Ministry of Azerbaijan reported, noting that although there are no victims, the combine harvester was damaged.
This is another proof of Armenia’s hostile attitude not only to the Azerbaijani Army, but also to ordinary population, unarmed civilians who are just engaged in their daily activities. The Armenian troops often attempt to shell the Azerbaijani settlements located in the frontline regions, thus trying to threaten the lives of peaceful Azerbaijanis living there.
In general, the Armenian armed forces violated ceasefire 84 times throughout the day, using large-caliber machine guns. The military units located on nameless hills in Armenia’s Noyemberyan, Ijevan, Berd and Krasnoselsk regions subjected to fire the positions of the Azerbaijani Army located in Gaymagli village and on nameless hills in Gazakh region, in Agdam village of Tovuz region as well as in Goyali village and on nameless hills of Gadabay region.
Moreover, the positions of the Azerbaijani Army were fired from the Armenian military units located near the occupied Azerbaijani villages of Tartar, Agdam, Khojavand, Fuzuli, Jabrayil and Goranboy regions.
Azerbaijan has many times noted in the international arena the inadmissibility of such a conduct of the Armenian side, but the leadership of the aggressor country continues to preserve tension in the region by such provocations. The main objective of the Armenian authorities is to maintain the status quo in Nagorno-Karabakh in defiance of the four UN Security Council resolutions on withdrawal of the Armenian armed forces from Azerbaijan’s Nagorno-Karabakh and other occupied regions.
Therefore, the international community must exert pressure on Armenia to ensure the cessation of armed provocations against Azerbaijan, the implementation of the UN Security Council resolutions, and the beginning of substantive negotiations with Azerbaijan on the settlement of the Nagorno Karabakh conflict.
