The total number of those who lost their lives to fighting is believed to be much higher, as both sides regularly claim to have inflicted significant military causalities on the other.

The region’s human rights ombudsman Artak Beglaryan reported that around 31 civilians died on Monday – hundreds more were injured.

He tweeted that the recent strikes against Ghazanchetsots Cathedral in the controversial territorial city of Shusha – for which Armenia blamed Azerbaijan – were synonymous with a war crime and used the hashtags “#AzerbaijaniAggression” and “#WarCrimes”.

The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict has lasted for over 25 years, and both Armenia and Azerbaijan have repeatedly accused the other side of the attacks amid global appeals to end hostilities and initiate peace talks.

A ceasefire agreement brokered by Russia, which has a security pact with Armenia was signed last week.

However, the ceasefire was challenged and both sides accused the other of continuing to breach the agreement.

Two days ago Azerbaijan accused Armenia of breaking the agreement and killing nine civilians during a missile attack.

On Tuesday, Azerbaijani officials accused the Armenian armed forces of firing on some of their regions.

Meanwhile, Nagorno-Karabakh, administered by Armenia, has said Azerbaijan has initiated “large-scale military operations” along the frontline.

Both European Union and Russia call on both sides to respect the ceasefire agreement.
