On January 11, the Armenian Defense Ministry announced the death of two and the wounding of two more servicemen of the Armenian Armed Forces, the department's press service reports.

Yerevan reports that the Azerbaijani Armed Forces are firing in the direction of the Armenian positions located on the eastern direction of the Armenian-Azerbaijani border, using artillery and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The information about another person killed in the shootout appeared on the morning of January 12. The body of another Armenian serviceman was found on Wednesday night, January 12. The man died of gunshot wounds.

"On January 11, around midnight, the body of an Armenian serviceman Vaan Vachaganovich Babayan with a fatal gunshot wound was found in the zone of intense hostilities that began after the provocation of Azerbaijani units in the east of the country," the statement reads.

The Ministry of Defense of Azerbaijan also reported an aggravation of the situation on the Armenian-Azerbaijani border. The agency noted that units of the Azerbaijani army are taking adequate measures in response without the use of aircraft and artillery.

As it was reported, information about mutual shelling on the border of Armenia and Azerbaijan appeared in the afternoon of January 11. The parties accused each other of provocations.

The escalation in Nagorno-Karabakh began on September 27 last year, when the Azerbaijani side fired on settlements, as well as military units in Karabakh. The Armenian government has declared martial law in the country.

On November 9, Armenia and Azerbaijan signed an agreement to end the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. About 1,600 Russian peacekeepers with armored vehicles were brought into the region for at least 5 years to guarantee it.

However, the Armenian Ministry of Defense soon announced an offensive by Azerbaijani troops in the Stary Tagar and Hzarberd regions (southern Karabakh). On December 12, Azerbaijan and Armenia accused each other of violating the ceasefire.

In late March, the Armenian parliament canceled the martial law that was introduced in the country in late September last year due to the hostilities in Nagorno-Karabakh. In April, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliev stated that the Karabakh conflict is now over. He also stated that Baku has no territorial claims in Armenia.
