The fragile ceasefire in the Shushi region of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh) was shattered on July 3, when the Armed Forces of Azerbaijan launched an attack using small arms and a 60 mm mortar, according to officials.

The violation occurred around 3:50 p.m., sending shockwaves through the area and raising concerns about the ongoing stability of the region following the recent conflict. Thankfully, no casualties have been reported from the Armenian side, as authorities continue to assess the situation.

The breach of the ceasefire has swiftly been communicated to the command of the Russian peacekeeping troops, who are actively engaged in maintaining peace and stability in the aftermath of the recent hostilities between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

The incident underscores the fragility of the current situation in Artsakh and serves as a reminder of the challenges that persist even as efforts are made to rebuild and restore normalcy to the region. International observers are closely watching the response of both sides and the role of the peacekeeping mission in preventing further escalation.

As tensions remain high, the international community and stakeholders continue to call for restraint and adherence to the ceasefire agreements. The recent breach serves as a stark reminder of the need for sustained diplomatic efforts to ensure lasting peace in the region.
