YEREVAN/BAKU – On Sunday, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other of breaching a new humanitarian truce in the fighting over the ethnic Armenian-controlled Nagorno-Karabakh enclave in Azerbaijan.
Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a humanitarian ceasefire at midnight on Saturday night, both countries said. The ceasefire came into effect at midnight (2000 GMT).
The move came after Azerbaijan announced that it had killed 13 civilians in an Armenian missile attack on its second-largest city, Ganja.
Dozens of people were also injured in their sleep during the overnight missile attack and a row of homes was burned.
The Armenian Ministry of Defense refuted the allegation and accused Baku of continuing to shell populated areas within Nagorno-Karabakh, including the largest city in the country, Stepanakert.
