On October 16, Armenian forces repelled another Azerbaijani ground attack in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
The Azerbaijani Armed Forces launched the attack in the northern part of the region in the early morning. The attack violates the humanitarian ceasefire that was announced by both Azerbaijan and Armenia from the Russian capital, Moscow, last week.
Videos released by the local Artsakh Defense Army and the Ministry of Defense of Armenia show precision artillery strikes on Azerbaijani troops attempting to advance in Nagorno-Karabakh in the morning.
Over the last two days, Azerbaijani forces captured 14 villages and towns in Nagorno-Karabakh in a blatant defiance of the ceasefire agreement.
Azerbaijani operations in Nagorno-Karabakh have claimed the lives of more than 600 Armenian service members since September 27. Azerbaijan’s human losses, which are yet to be announced, are likely comparable.
Syrian militants and allegedly Turkish troops are backing Azerbaijan’s repeated attacks in Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenian forces, on the other side, are fighting on their own.
