Armenia & Azerbaijan complain about ‘intense’ shelling & drone strikes shortly before Nagorno-Karabakh truce enters into force

Baku and Yerevan accused each other of attacks hours before their ceasefire was set to begin at 12pm local time on Saturday. Russia brokered the truce after lengthy overnight talks in Moscow between their foreign ministers.

Azerbaijan’s Defense Ministry claimed that Armenia had launched volleys of rockets at the town of Hadrut in disputed Nagorno-Karabakh and “intensively” shelled several Azerbaijani villages on Saturday morning.

A representative from the Armenian Ministry of Defense denied that the country's forces had targeted Hadrut. Baku earlier announced that its army had seized the town during its offensive into Nagorno-Karabakh, but Yerevan kiboshed that claim, saying that Armenians were still in control.

Armenia’s Defense Ministry spokesperson Shushan Stepanyan, meanwhile, said that Azerbaijan used combat drones on Saturday to attack two villages in the Syunik region in the southern part of the country. The claim was rejected by Baku.
