Yerevan/Baku: Ar­me­nia and

Azer­bai­jan ac­cused each other yes­ter­day of vi­o­lat­ing a new hu­man­i­tar­ian cease­fire in fight­ing over the moun­tain en­clave of NagornoKar­abakh, hours af­ter it was agreed.

The truce agreed on Satur­day came into force at 8am yes­ter­day NZT, af­ter a week­old Rus­sian­bro­kered cease­fire failed to halt the worst fight­ing in the South Cau­ca­sus since the 1990s.

The Ar­me­nian de­fence min­istry said the Az­eri army had used ar­tillery.

The Az­eri de­fence min­istry said: ‘‘The en­emy fired at the vicin­ity of the Jabrail city, as well as the vil­lages of this re­gion . . . us­ing mor­tars and ar­tillery’’ and the Az­eri army ‘‘took ad­e­quate re­tal­ia­tory mea­sures’’. — Reuters
