Azerbaijani defense ministry accuses Armenia of shelling settlements, civilian casualties

Baku, Oct 8 (Sputnik) – The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry accused on Thursday the Armenian forces of shelling its settlements in several regions adjacent to the self-proclaimed Republic of Artsakh.
“#Armed forces of #Armenia shelling #Goranboy, #Terter and #Agdam regions of #Azerbaijan. Casualties among civilians. Azerbaijan Armed Forces taking adequate measures,” the ministry wrote on its Twitter page.
The hostilities in Azerbaijan’s Armenian-dominated breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh erupted on September 27 when both parties accused each other of violating the ceasefire.
Armenia and the Republic of Artsakh, which controls most parts of Nagorno-Karabakh, said that Azerbaijan had launched an offensive on the breakaway region, and both declared martial law and mobilization. Azerbaijan has also declared martial law and partial mobilization.
Most countries, including Russia, have called on the warring parties to cease hostilities and settle their differences via dialogue. However, Turkey has vowed to support Azerbaijan with all the needed means.
