Russian Brokered Nagorno-Karabakh Violated by Armenia
Armenian rebels in the region under the control of Russian peacekeepers have breached the Nagorno-Karabakh Armistice.

Nagorno-Karabakh, SAEDNEWS, Dec. 14: Fighting continued on Sunday between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, violating the November ceasefire that ended the bloody conflict.

Azerbaijan’s defence ministry said four of its soldiers were killed when their units were attacked in areas adjacent to the Nagorno-Karabakh region, while authorities in Armenia said six of their troops had been wounded.

Armenia and Azerbaijan on Saturday accused each other of breaching the deal, which ended six weeks of fierce fighting over the disputed territory, with Azerbaijan’s President Ilham Aliyev threatening to crush Armenian forces with an “iron fist”.

“Armenia shouldn’t try to start it all over again,” Aliyev said during a meeting with top diplomats from the United States and France, who have tried to mediate the decades-old conflict.

“It must be very cautious and not plan any military action. This time, we will fully destroy them. It mustn’t be a secret to anyone.”

Earlier on Saturday, Nagorno-Karabakh forces said three of their fighters had been wounded in an attack by Azerbaijani forces (Source: AlJazeera).
