The Azerbaijani military shelled the cities of Shushi and Stepanakert in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh a few hours only after accepting an agreement that prevents attacks on civilian settlements.

The Armenian Unified Infocenter said the shelling, which took place on October 31 morning, hit a central market and at least one civilian house.

A video released by the center showed heavy material damage at the targeted cities. Nevertheless, no human losses were reported as a result of the shelling.

A day earlier, the OSCE Minsk Group announced that Armenia and Azerbaijan had accepted an agreement that would see both sides halting attacks on civilian settlements and exchanging the remains of fallen soldiers.

Armenia’s Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan condemned the shelling of Shushi and Stepanakert, accusing Azerbaijan of violating the newly-reached agreement.

“Azerbaijan leadership is not capable to fulfill its own commitments and Artsakh [Nagorno-Karabakh] civilian population is its main enemy and target,” the PM said on twitter.

From its side, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan accused Armenian forces of shelling several towns and villages in the districts of Terter, Aghdam, and Aghjabedi districts on October 31. There were no human losses.

The recent military actions of both Armenia and Azerbaijan indicate that the new humanitarian agreement on Nagorno-Karabakh has already collapsed. The two sides may not even exchange the bodies of fallen soldiers.
