<p>According to sources, the agreement was announced by the government of the breakaway part of Azerbaijan and would go into effect at 1 p.m. local time.</p>
<p>According to sources, the agreement was achieved via talks with the Russian peacekeeping troops stationed in the area and calls for the removal of Armenian military personnel and equipment from Nagor-Karabakh as well as the disarmament of the local defense forces.</p>
<p>There were no other information available right away.</p>
<p>Azerbaijani troops utilized heavy artillery fire on Armenian positions in the area on Tuesday, which led to explosions that shook sections of Nagorno-Karabakh earlier in the day. Numerous deaths and injuries were reported, according to local authorities.</p>
<p>According to Azerbaijan, the artillery firing is a “anti-terrorist operation” that will carry on until the separatist government of Nagorno-Karabakh disbands and “illegal Armenian military formations” submit.</p>
<p>Although it claimed to be exclusively targeting military facilities, there is obvious damage in the streets of Stepanakert, the provincial capital, with store windows blasted out and cars with clear shrapnel punctures.</p>
<p>Every few minutes on Wednesday morning, explosions echoed around Stepanakert, some further away and some closer to the city.</p>
<p>Azerbaijan and Armenia, who have been at war for more than 30 years over the mountainous region of Nagorno-Karabakh, sparked fears that a full-scale conflict in the area may break out again as a result of the artillery fire. The most recent protracted conflict there lasted for six weeks in 2020.</p>
<p>The military action was launched by Azerbaijan’s defense ministry on Tuesday, only hours after it claimed that land mine blasts in Nagorno-Karabakh had killed four troops and two civilians.</p>
<p>Although the ministry withheld more information, it claimed that only legitimate military targets were being targeted and that front-line positions and military equipment of Armenia’s armed forces were being “incapacitated using high-precision weapons.”</p>
<p>More than 2,000 people were evacuated from Nagorno-Karabakh, according to the Russian defense ministry on Wednesday, but it did not specify where they were transferred.</p>
<p>However, the foreign ministry of Armenia denied any presence of its forces or weaponry in Nagorno-Karabakh and referred to reports of sabotage and land mines there as “lies.” Nikol Pashiyan, the prime minister of Armenia, said that Azerbaijan’s primary objective is to incite conflict with Armenia.</p>
<p>In a statement, ethnic Armenian authorities in Nagorno-Karabakh said that Stepanakert and other villages were “under intense shelling.” The military of the area said that Azerbaijan was engaging in combat utilizing drones, planes, artillery, and missile systems.</p>
<p>As a result of the battle, Stepanakert’s citizens fled to basements and bomb shelters. There were still food shortages in the region, and the meager humanitarian material that was sent on Monday was not distributed because of the shelling, which started up again in the evening after taking a brief break in the afternoon.</p>
<p>According to Geghan Stepanyan, the human rights ombudsman for Nagorno-Karabakh, 32 people—including seven civilians—were murdered and more than 200 others were injured. Stepanyan previously said that 11 children were among the injured and that one youngster was among the fatalities.</p>
<p>One civilian was killed when Armenian troops used large-caliber weaponry to fire into Shusha, a city in Nagorno-Karabakh that is under Azerbaijani control, according to the Azerbaijani Prosecutor General’s Office.</p>
<p>Both assertions were unable to be independently confirmed.</p>
<p>Since the conclusion of a separatist conflict in 1994, Nagorno-Karabakh and significant adjacent territory have been ruled by ethnic Armenians; however, following the fighting in 2020, Azerbaijan reclaimed the surrounding territories and portions of Nagorno-Karabakh. An armistice that came to an end saw the deployment of Russian forces in Nagorno-Karabakh.</p>
<p>But Azerbaijan claims that since then, Armenia has smuggled in weaponry. Due to the allegations, the route between Nagorno-Karabakh and Armenia was blocked, leading to a lack of food and supplies.</p>
<p>In Yerevan’s city center on Tuesday, thousands of protestors gathered to block roadways and call on the government to protect Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh. Some engaged in conflict with officers, who allegedly fired stun grenades. According to the Health Ministry of Armenia, a total of 34 individuals, including 16 police officers and 18 civilians, were hurt during the conflicts. According to the government, around half of them are still receiving medical care.</p>
