Karabakh Army Repels Major Azerbaijani Attack, the Enemy Suffers Significant Casualties

The two sides must make all efforts to restore peace and settle disputes through negotiation and dialogue, Ghasemi said, expressing hope that all global institutions and mechanisms responsible for resolving the conflict remain committed to their obligations.

Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry says it has removed the bodies of five of its soldiers who were killed in fighting on the fringes of Nagorno-Karabakh.

Ceasefire violations around Nagorno-Karabakh dramatically intensified early on Saturday, with Karabakh forces repelling major Azerbaijani attacks at two sections of the frontline. "And in the end, the scene clearly shows the bodies of Azerbaijani soldiers left in Martuni", Artsrun Hovannisian - Spokesman of the Defense Ministry said.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry late on Sunday called on neighboring Armenia and the Azerbaijan Republic to settle the conflict over the Nagorno-Karabakh issue through dialogue, ISNA reported. In April 2016, more than 270 military personnel lost their lives in the worst-ever breach of a 1994 treaty between the sides, according to the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry.

The Azerbaijani Defense Ministry has published the names of the names of its soldiers killed in the neutral zone as a result of Saturday's attack attempt by the Azerbaijani forces. Since the 1990s war, Armenian armed forces have occupied over 20 percent of Azerbaijan's internationally recognized territory, including Nagorno-Karabakh and seven adjacent regions. The two sides never signed a firm peace deal.

The Co-Chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group (Ambassadors Igor Popov of Russia, Stephane Visconti of France and Richard Hoagland of the United States of America) released a statement on February 26, urging the sides of the Karabakh conflict to refrain from the use of force. Several bodies remain in the no-man's land.

The separatists' military command said several Azerbaijani soldiers were killed and that separatist forces did not suffer any casualties. The Sides accuse each other of an incursion attempt.
