Armenia accuses Azerbaijan of violating truce in Nagorno-Karabakh | Al Jazeera

Armenia has accused Azerbaijan of violating a fresh “humanitarian truce” minutes after the agreement came into force on Sunday, as both Russia and France said they intervened in an attempt to mediate an end to the latest escalation in violence over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Shusan Stepanyan, a spokeswoman for Armenia’s defence ministry, said on Twitter that Azerbaijan fired artillery shells and rockets in the early hours of Sunday.

There was no immediate comment from Azerbaijan.

The ceasefire deal, agreed on Saturday, came a week after Russia brokered a truce, which failed to stop the worst fighting in the region in decades, with both warring sides accusing each other of violations.
