Nagorno-Karabakh: Stepanakert houses destroyed as ceasefire enters second day

Disputed Territory, Stepanakert
October 11, 2020 at 22:57 GMT +00:00 · Published

Footage from Sunday in the Nagorno-Karabakh capital shows the damaged city just a day after the Saturday ceasefire.

A three metre (nine foot) crater, burnt building as well as destroyed houses, could be seen in Stepanakert as the disputed territory entered the second day of the Armenian-Azerbaijani ceasefire.

A local resident also appeared to show fragments of shells that allegedly broke the windows of a house.

The Armenian Foreign Ministry accused Baku of “shelling the city of Stepanakert and other civilian settlements” and violating the ceasefire agreement.

"The ceasefire, that announced by our Foreign Minister and the Russian Foreign Minister, is real from our side, but from Azerbaijan it is another fake. And we heard and saw shots yesterday: Stepanakert was bombed very hard," the man said.

On his turn the Azeri President Ilham Aliev stated it was Yerevan who “blatantly violated the ceasefire regime and launched a missile attack on innocent residents in the city of Ganja.”

Armenia and Azerbaijan agreed to a Russian-brokered ceasefire from midday (local time; 08:00 GMT) on October 10, and plan to start negotiations over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the territory of the Nagorno-Karabakh disputed region broke out on September 27 when sides of the conflict exchanged fire. It's been the heaviest clashes in the region since the 1994 ceasefire, with both sides blaming each other for the escalation amid rising casualty figures.
