PanARMENIAN.Net - Armenian Defense Ministry representative Artsrun Hovhannisyan reported heavy fighting in the south-east of the Nagorno-Karabakh frontline on Monday, October 26.

Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed earlier that a humanitarian ceasefire reached on October 10 and October 17 will take effect in the morning of October 26, according to a statement released by the Governments of the United States, Armenia, and Azerbaijan on Sunday.

Azerbaijan, however, has violated the ceasefire, shelling both Armenian positions and the town of Martuni in Karabakh. One civilian was killed and two others were wounded in Avetaranots village as a result of Azerbaijani missile attacks on Monday.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
