Azeri drone shot down over Stepanakert

The Nagorno-Karabakh air defense units downed an Azerbaijani drone in the skies of Stepanakert, the capital, on Sunday, October 18, Karabakh army spokesman Suren Sarumyan reports.

Although the parties to the conflict have agreed on a humanitarian ceasefire two times since the beginning of hostilities but Azerbaijan has failed to honor the agreement both times. Truce has been agreed upon for the evacuation of bodies and the exchange of prisoners of war.

Azerbaijan, with help from Turkey and Syrian and Libyan mercenaries deployed by Ankara, started a war against Karabakh (Artsakh) in the morning of September 27. The Armenian side has reported deaths and injuries both among the civilian population and the military. Foreign and local journalists too have been injured in Azeri shelling of towns and villages.
