The information spread by the Armenian side about the alleged artillery shelling of Khankendi and Khojavend cities by the Azerbaijan Army does not reflect the reality and is fake news, says the Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan.

“We declare that the Azerbaijan Army fully complies with the humanitarian ceasefire regime”, the Ministry reported.

Note, a ceasefire was agreed between Azerbaijan and Armenia starting from 00:00 on October 18, 2020 for humanitarian purposes for the exchange of prisoners of war and other detained persons and bodies of the dead, mediated and in accordance with the criteria of the International Committee of the Red Cross.
