Azerbaijan's Ministry of Defence said that Armenian armed forces fired ballistic missiles towards its territory in Gabala and Kurdamir districts, north of the country, targeting civilians.

On October 22 in the morning, the territory of Azerbaijan was exposed to ballistic missiles fired using the operational-tactical missile complex from the territory of Armenia, Azerbaijan's Ministry of Defence told (AZERTAC).

On the other hand, the Armenian Ministry of Defence denied that its forces launched ballistic missiles from its territory towards Azerbaijan.

‘The announcement of the Azerbaijani side on Armenia's alleged launching of ballistic missiles in the direction of Gabala and Kurdamir is utter nonsense,’ (ARMENPRESS) quoted Armenian Defense Ministry spokesperson Shushan Stepanyan as saying.

‘No missile has been fired from the territory of the Republic of Armenian in the direction of Azerbaijan,’ he said.

Azerbaijan and Armenia announced last Saturday that they had agreed on a ‘humanitarian truce’ to put an end to the bloody escalation in the Nagorno-Karabakh region. The new truce came a week after the announcement of a ceasefire agreement that the two countries failed of fulfil. They accused each other of responsibility for the agreement's breach. (QNA)
