“Despite the agreement to declare a ceasefire at 12:00 pm, the Armenian army attempted to attack in the Aghdere-Terter and Fizuli-Jabrayil directions,” the ministry said in a statement. “At the same time, a number of our human settlements are under artillery fire from the armed forces of Armenia.”


It said the Azerbaijani military had “successfully suppressed” all attempted attacks. “Adequate retaliatory measures are being taken against the Armenian army,” the Defense Ministry asserted.

The ministry shared video footage on its website showing Armenian armored vehicles being destroyed by Azerbaijani forces.

The truce came after a trilateral meeting in Moscow on Friday between the foreign ministers of Russia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia.
