Reports that ceasefire has been broken in Nagorno-Karabakh – hears powerful explosions – VG

A new bombing has hit the regional capital of Nagorno-Karabakh, despite the ceasefire intended to stop the fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Seven powerful explosions shook the city of Stepanakert around 23.30 on Saturday local time, reports the news agency AFP.

The plane alarm went off to warn residents that they had to seek refuge in basements and other safe shelters.

The ceasefire was negotiated with the help of Russia night to Saturday and entered into force at 12 noon Saturday afternoon.

Just minutes later, the two parties accused each other of breaking it.

A representative of the authorities in the Nagorno-Karabakh breakaway region said Azerbaijani missiles had hit civilian areas in Stepanakert, which serves as the capital of Nagorno-Karabakh, NTB wrote earlier on Saturday.

The region is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan, but is in practice an autonomous republic with an Armenian population that has great Armenian support.

The case is being updated.
