Azerbaijan intensively violates ceasefire as Artsakh celebrates Independence Day

The Azerbaijani side continued to intensively violate the ceasefire regime on September 1-2, the NKR Ministry of Defense said in a statement.

The rival violated the ceasefire about 250 times in the reporting period, firing more than 5,000 shots from weapons of different caliber, including 60 and 82 mm mortars, RPG-7 and HAN-17 grenade launchers, as well as Turkey-made TP-107 reactive rocket launchers.

The activeness of the rival was pressured as a result of retaliatory measures taken by the front divisions of the NKR Defense Army.

The Defense Ministry says the rival often uses the large-caliber rocket and artillery weapons, something Azerbaijan’s propaganda machine is trying to conceal. As a proof, the Ministry presents photos of the weapons.
