The Azerbaijani Armed Forces continue to advance in the region of Nagorno-Karabakh despite the new humanitarian ceasefire that was announced on October 17.
On October 18, the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan released a video showing a large base that was recently captured from Armenian forces. The base, which is located in the district of Fizuli, was abandoned in a hurry.
Armenian troops left behind loads of weapons and equipment, including battle tanks, armored vehicles, howitzers and dozens of anti-tank guided missiles.
The Azerbaijani MoD also shared a video showing Armenian Special Forces fleeing their posts in an unspecified part of Nagorno-Karabakh. The posts were captured by Azerbaijani troops.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Defense of Armenia shared a video documenting a large attack by Azerbaijani troops early on October 18. The attack was launched a few hours after the new ceasefire.

The new humanitarian ceasefire appears to be a failure. Azerbaijan is clearly unwilling to halt its military operations in Nagorno-Karabakh. Armenian forces are making immense effort to hold onto their positions.
