An infiltration attempt carried out by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces during the early morning of July 8 was pushed back according to the Defense Ministry of the unrecognized Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.

The NKR MoD added that the attempt came at 3:20 AM in the direction of Aghdam, and that the Azerbaijai Army violated the ceasefire in different directions by weapons of various calibers.

No casualties have been reported from either side.

The Azerbaijani Ministry of Defense denied it had carried out any diversion attempts.

The attempt is the first of its kind after fierce clashes erupted in early April.
