Armenia blames Azerbaijan for ceasefire breach

Armenian Defense Minister Serj Sarkisian has expressed his position
on the ceasefire breach on the Armenian-Azerbaijani frontier.

He said the situation on the contact line between Armenian Tavus
region’s Berkaber village and Azerbaijan’s Gazakh region’s Mazam
village is different from that on the rest of the frontline. However,
Sarkisian said Armenian military units allegedly did not launch any
attacks and breached the ceasefire only in retaliation to Azerbaijani

He added that two Armenian military men died as a result of the
skirmish. Two Azerbaijani officers were killed and two civilians (a
child and a woman) injured as a result of ceasefire breaches by
Armenia in June.
