Armenian Armed Forces fired at Azerbaijani Armed Forces from their positions near the villages of Shikhlar, Javakhirli of the Agdam region, Tapgaragoyunlu of the Goranboy region and from positions at the heights of the Fizuli region, the Azerbaijani Defense Ministry reported on Saturday.

Attacks were suppressed by return fire.

The conflict between the two South Caucasus countries began in 1988 when Armenia made territorial claims against Azerbaijan.

Armenian armed forces have occupied 20 per cent of Azerbaijan since 1992, including the Nagorno-Karabakh region and seven surrounding districts.

Azerbaijan and Armenia signed a ceasefire agreement in 1994. The co-chairs of the OSCE Minsk Group - Russia, France and the U.S. - are currently holding peace negotiations.

Armenia has not yet implemented the U.N. Security Council's four resolutions on the liberation of the Nagorno-Karabakh and the surrounding regions.
