STEPANAKERT—Azerbaijani forces assumed an infringement attempt late Thursday night in the eastern and southern directions of the Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) and Azerbaijan border, Karabakh’s Defense Ministry reported.

The Defense Ministry announced that divisions along the frontline spotted and engaged with Azerbaijani forces advancing toward the border, inflicting causalities, causing the adversary’s army to pull back.

The Nagorno-Karabakh army saw no losses.

In addition to the infringement attempt, Azerbaijan violated the ceasefire agreement about 50 times in the early hours of October 21. The adversary used various weapons, firing over 2,800 shots toward the Nagorno-Karabakh positions.

The Ministry also reported that the adversary fired a DShk-like machine gun about 200 times in the southern direction of Artsakh.

The Artsakh Defense Army says it continues to maintain complete control of the frontlines and are ready to prevent any provocation coming from Azerbaijan.
