Armenia does not fire at Azerbaijan from its territory. The press secretary of the Armenian Defense Ministry Shushan Stepanyan stated this on October 4.
“The Ministry of Defense of Armenia officially reports that no fire is being fired from the territory of the Republic of Armenia in the direction of Azerbaijan,” she wrote on her Facebook page.
The shelling from the territory of Armenia was announced earlier that day in Baku. According to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry, the Armenian Armed Forces fired missiles at the city of Ganja, writes TASS.
Also, the Azerbaijani side claims that the villages of Agdam and Terter regions and the cities of Terter and Horadiz in the Fizuli region are being fired from the Karabakh Stepanakert.
Later, the authorities of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR) reported that they had struck military targets in the cities of Azerbaijan in response to the shelling of civilian targets by the Azerbaijani army in Stepanakert. It is alleged that the Karabakh military destroyed the Azerbaijani airfield in Ganja.
Another aggravation of the situation in the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic occurred on September 27. Armenia and Azerbaijan blamed each other for shelling and killed among the military and civilians.
Armenia has repeatedly accused Turkey of participating in the battles on the side of Azerbaijan. Ankara and Baku deny this information, while the Turkish authorities expressed their readiness to provide assistance to the Azerbaijani side upon request.
Russia, France, the United States and the UN called on the parties to a ceasefire and a peaceful settlement.
